Nominations open for inaugural Award for Excellence in Faculty Mentoring

Faculty members are invited to nominate an exceptional mentor among their colleagues for the inaugural Johns Hopkins Award for Excellence in Faculty Mentoring.

The award was created as part of a series of initiatives, announced in November, to strengthen mentoring across the university. It will honor a full- or part-time Johns Hopkins faculty member who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to facilitating the development of early- and midcareer faculty. It includes a $5,000 honorarium.

Nominations from faculty members, including self-nominations, will be accepted starting March 1. Materials must be emailed to by 5 p.m. on March 30.

"The award aims to recognize the full range of mentorship in the areas of academic support and career development, including scholarship, teaching, service, and leadership," Provost Robert C. Lieberman said in a call for proposals. "The ideal candidate will have demonstrated excellence in helping mentees build relationships to achieve their specific professional goals, aiding them in forging connections with internal and external networks of colleagues, and fostering professional and intellectual independence."

Submissions must include a letter of nomination, the nominee's current curriculum vitae, a list of faculty who have been mentored by the nominee, and supporting letters from up to six faculty members who have been mentored. More information is available on the Faculty Affairs website.
