Honoring faculty mentors at GSAS

1 min read

Professors Gary King in Government, Joanna Nizynska in Slavic, Anne Pringle in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, and Christopher Winship in Sociology are the recipients of the 2011 Everett Mendelsohn Excellence in Mentoring Awards, given by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

The awards were presented on April 12 in a Dudley House ceremony attended by the GSAS deans, winning faculty mentors and their students, and other faculty who were nominated for the honor. They are presented annually by the Graduate Student Council and named for Professor of the History of Science Emeritus Everett I. Mendelsohn, a former master of Dudley House. They celebrate faculty who go out of their way to mentor GSAS students, supporting them professionally and personally in ways large, small, and always meaningful — doing everything from inviting them to collaborate on papers and critiquing their talks to inviting them home for Thanksgiving.
