Jamie Hanson and Cory Holding won the 2022 Award for Excellence in Graduate Mentoring
The Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences recently recognized two faculty members with the Award for Excellence in Graduate Mentoring: Jamie Hanson, an assistant professor of psychology and Cory Holding, a teaching professor in composition.
The award celebrates early-to-mid-career faculty members who excel in mentoring students. Candidates must not only show that they help their students learn, but also promote an inclusive and supporting environment and encourage their students in professional development and work-life balance.
This year’s awardees were celebrated at an event hosted by Professor and Associate Dean for Graduate Studies Jonathan Woon. The ceremony also served as a recognition of the past two years of awardees: Associate Professor Rachel Bezanson and Associate Professor Michelle Granshaw in 2021, along with Associate Professor Jennifer Josten and Assistant Professor Khirsten Scott in 2020.
