IMS Faculty Awards
The Mel Silverman Mentorship Award
The Mel Silverman Mentorship Award is presented to an IMS graduate faculty member who has served as an outstanding mentor and role model for graduate students, and who has contributed in a significant way to the IMS graduate program.
Good mentoring is a continuous process that takes time, patience and dedication, beginning at the very first meeting and continuing well beyond graduation. It involves mutual respect and trust and is an integral part of the collegial atmosphere at a university. A good mentor will challenge their students to achieve to the maximum of their potential, with sage advice, and good listening skills. Good mentors give students the freedom and confidence to succeed on their own merit.
Candidates for this award must be nominated by two IMS graduate students. Nominations include a detailed covering letter in support of the candidate, as well as a copy of the candidate’s curriculum vitae.
