Five faculty members chosen as Outstanding Graduate Mentors
Five Auburn faculty members have been selected as the Graduate Student Council’s 2021 Outstanding Graduate Mentors.
Below is the list of winners:
• Antonio Duran, Educational Foundations, Leadership and Technology
• Davide Guzzetti, Aerospace Engineering
• Joseph (Joe) Majdalani, Aerospace Engineering
• Maria Soledad Peresin, Forestry and Wildlife Sciences
• Jared Russell, Kinesiology
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 were recognized along with other Graduate School award winners at a virtual ceremony via Zoom on April 16. The Graduate Student Council has presented the Outstanding Graduate Mentor Awards since 2008.
