To recognize the considerable efforts and accomplishments of faculty and students who consistently serve as effective mentors, the Duke University Graduate School established the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Mentoring. This year, the Graduate School is pleased to announce that the following graduate faculty members and graduate students have been selected, after careful review and deliberation, to receive this award:
Associate Professor of Sociology
John Carlisle Kilgo Professor of Religion and Professor of History

A reception honoring these recipients is scheduled for Thursday, April 15 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at the Fitzpatrick Center Atrium.

The tough competition for these awards reveals that a vibrant culture of mentoring at Duke continues to unfold before us. By honoring these sterling examples of mentoring-in-action we continue sharing the vision for this culture more broadly so that it may become a deeply rooted part of what students and faculty of the Graduate School come to expect from the Duke experience.
