Mon, 02/12/2018

AirUCI faculty Donald Dabdub has won the 2018 Tom Angell Faculty Mentoring Award.  The review committee was very impressed with his mentoring record and wrote to him saying that they found his history of mentorship of both undergraduate and graduate students to be exceptional.   They were particularly impressed with both Donald's doctoral student’s account of how he teaches graduate students a variety of professional skills that will serve them well in their future careers, and also with his dedication to mentoring first-generation college students and international students.
In recognition of Donald's contributions, the UCI Graduate Division is awarding him a $500 Tom Angell Fellowship, to be paid to the graduate student of his choice. The Tom Angell Fellowship was created in remembrance of UCI's first Graduate Counselor, Tom Angell, who was dedicated to the wellness and mentoring of graduate students.  Way to go, Donald!
