Outstanding Mentor Awards Recipients

A mark of a great leader is the support and guidance that they provide to others through mentorship. The FWA Outstanding Faculty Mentor Award seeks to recognize faculty members who have demonstrated outstanding mentorship to students and/or to other faculty members, particularly women and other underrepresented groups.

Nominations for Outstanding Faculty Mentor are accepted each Spring. For more information on the award nomination process, contact Karen Engler, FWA Program Director.
