A mentor is not just an educator. A mentor is a person who inspires and motivates. A mentor is committed to excellence.

The UAB Graduate Dean's Excellence in Mentorship Award recognizes full-time regular UAB faculty members who have demonstrated exceptional accomplishments as mentors of graduate students and/or postdoctoral fellows.

Ten were honored with the 2019 mentorship award April 2 at 4:00 p.m. at the UAB National Alumni Society House. Award winners were presented with a handcrafted, blown-glass green and gold candy dish, as well as a framed certificate and a copy of the letters their mentees and colleagues wrote to nominate them for the honor.
