Faculty Mentor of the Year, Ellen Lau
Huge congratulations to Ellen Lau, Graduate Faculty Mentor of the Year for 2017. The prize, one of four awarded this year in response to thirty nominations, "recognizes outstanding achievement in mentoring by paying tribute to those faculty members who have made exceptional contributions to a student’s (or students’) graduate education and experience." Thanks also to Mina Hirzel, who led Ellen's nomination. On Thursday, May 11, 2017, 3:00-5:00 p.m., in Adele H. Stamp Student Union in the Prince Georges Room, we will all have the opportunity to applaud, as Ellen's award is recognized at this year's Graduate School’s Annual Fellowship and Award Celebration.
