[The following announcement comes from the Office of the Dean, Undergraduate Education.]
The President Emeritus and Mrs. Meyerson Award for Distinguished Undergraduate Teaching and Mentoring was established through a generous gift by the late UB President Emeritus Martin Meyerson and his wife, Margy Ellen, to recognize exceptional teaching and mentoring at UB. Faculty members who exemplify these qualities are foundational to the University at Buffalo and its academic mission. They provide the guidance and support needed to help undergraduate students develop the skills necessary for not only research and creativity but also for critical thinking and innovation. This award sets the bar for faculty excellence in helping our undergraduates reach their full potential as young scholars, and launching their future careers. In addition to their involvement with students, mentors are leaders within their own departments, extending beyond professional duties to engage other faculty and students in meaningful collaboration and initiatives. A common theme among successful faculty mentors is that their mentoring experiences are as impactful to them as they are for their students.
Faculty may be nominated for the award by students, faculty colleagues and/or university administrators. Individuals selected for the award will be recognized during UB’s annual Celebration of Student Academic Excellence, which will be held on Thursday, April 23, 2015.
The process and portal for nominations may be found at http://vpue.buffalo.edu/facstaff/faculty-award.php.
Nominations will be accepted through December 15, 2014.
