A subcommittee of the Graduate Council will convene to consider the nominations. The following criteria will be used:
- A nominee must embody attributes of high quality mentoring, such as those described in the Best Practices for Faculty Mentoring of Graduate Students adopted by the Graduate Council on March 6, 2006 (or subsequent revisions).
- A nominee may receive each Mentoring Award only once.
After the subcommittee has reviewed nominations for each award, recommendations will be forwarded to the Graduate Council for approval. The Award ceremony, open to the public and held in conjunction with the Graduate Assembly’s Faculty Mentoring Award ceremony, will be held on Thursday, April 18, 2013 from 4 - 6 pm at the Anna Head Alumnae Hall, 2537 Haste Street.
A $5,000 prize accompanies both of the Distinguished Graduate Mentoring Awards, for junior and senior faculty. This may be received as a salary payment through payroll of the entire amount (which is taxable), as a summer grant to a graduate student or as a fund to support graduate mentoring activities. If there are two awardees in a category, the prize will be split between the two recipients (at $2,500 each). Recipients will be profiled in campus publications.
