KATHLEEN MOONEY (College of Nursing), E. DALE ABEL (School of Medicine), and DON FEENER (Department of Biology) will receive this year’s award, which recognizes faculty members who effectively guide graduate students and postdoctoral scholars throughout their professional training in what is considered a multifaceted partnership sustained by mutual respect and concern. “The relationship between a graduate student and/or postdoctoral scholar and his or her faculty advisor is one that can have a profound, lifelong influence on both parties. At its best, this mentoring relationship inspires and gives confidence to the student or postdoctoral scholar while providing the faculty member with a valued colleague,” says Chuck Wight, dean of the Graduate School.
