Nominate a colleague for the Faculty Mentoring Award

The award for excellence recognizes the full range of mentorship in the areas of academic support and career development

The Office of the Provost is seeking nominations of faculty members who demonstrate an outstanding commitment to mentoring early career and midcareer colleagues.

The Johns Hopkins Award for Excellence in Faculty Mentoring includes a $5,000 honorarium and recognizes the full range of mentorship in the areas of academic support and career development. Nominations will be accepted via email to starting March 1 and will close at 5 p.m. on March 31. Self-nominations are welcome.

"The ideal candidate will have demonstrated excellence in helping mentees build relationships to achieve their specific professional goals, forge connections with internal and external networks of colleagues, and develop professional and intellectual independence," said Christopher S. Celenza, vice provost for faculty affairs, in a letter to the faculty.

Required materials for each nomination are:

  • A letter nominating a current full- or part-time JHU faculty member, not to exceed three pages, addressing: (i) the rationale for the nomination, (ii) specific details regarding the nominee's mentoring activities, and (iii) the nominee's impact on mentees' academic/professional careers.
  • The nominee's current curriculum vitae.
  • A list of faculty who have been mentored by the nominee and their current professional titles and affiliations. The nominee ideally generates this list.
  • Supporting letters from three to six faculty members (JHU and/or non-JHU faculty) who have been mentored by the nominee, addressing the nature and duration of the mentoring relationship and including specific examples demonstrating the impact of the nominee's mentoring on that individual's career and academic development.

Last year, Jacquelyn Campbell of the schools of Nursing and Public Health and Lisa Cooper of the schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health were recognized with the inaugural mentoring awards. The awards are one element of ongoing efforts to support a diverse faculty outlined in the JHU Roadmap for Diversity and Inclusion.
