2011 Killam Mentors Honoured at Fall Congregation
Each year at the University of British Columbia a number of our outstanding faculty are selected to receive a Killam Award for Excellence in Mentoring.
During this week’s graduation ceremonies Dr. Adlai Fisher, Sauder School of Business, will receive the 2011 mid-career award while the 2011 senior award is given jointly to Dr. Michael Fryzuk, Department of Chemistry and Dr. Brian McIlroy of the Department of Film and Theatre. These three outstanding graduate student mentors receive their awards along with the reading of a citation regarding their many contributions to the university and the lives of graduate students.
The Killam Awards for Excellence in Mentoring are based on sustained mentorship of numerous graduate students over many years. Mentoring may be related to, but is perceived as differing from, classroom teaching and may be distinct and separable from the usual measure of research productivity.
