Four faculty members chosen as Outstanding Graduate Mentors

Four Auburn University faculty members have been selected as the Graduate Student Council’s 2014 Outstanding Graduate Mentors.

The winners are:

  • Mary Helen Brown, School of Communication and Journalism;
  • Murali Dhanasekaran, Department of Drug Discovery and Development;
  • Amy Rauer, Department of Human Development and Family Studies; and
  • Christopher Roberts, Department of Chemical Engineering and Dean of the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering

The winners were selected from a pool of nearly 30 nominees for the awards, which recognize graduate faculty members who go above and beyond their duty as teachers, advisers and mentors. A committee of graduate students reviewed the nominations and picked the winners based on the strength of the nominees’ letters of support.

This year’s Outstanding Graduate Mentors will be recognized along with other Graduate School award winners at a ceremony on April 21. The Graduate Student Council has presented the Outstanding Graduate Mentor Awards since 2008.
