Award formally recognizes faculty’s successful and abiding commitment to advise and train undergraduate and graduate students
The College of Arts and Sciences at Indiana University Bloomington has awarded three of its faculty members the Distinguished Mentor Award, which was established to formally recognize and encourage innovative and student-centered advising and training of undergraduate and graduate students.
“I am delighted to offer my congratulations to Brian and Raquel, who embody the high standards of mentoring excellence we seek in our faculty,” said Rick Van Kooten, executive dean of the College. “Their commitment to student learning, academic development, and wellbeing is unparalleled, and the results of their dedication will pay dividends for generations, on our campus and in our graduates’ lives.”
Faculty are nominated for the award by their respective department chairs, and nominations are reviewed by the College’s associate deans, who share their selection recommendations with the executive dean.
