Drs. Keith Norris and Carol Mangione were nominated and selected to join the Faculty Mentoring Honor Society. Supported by a UCOP grant, the Faculty Mentoring Honor Society recognizes UCLA faculty who have given much time and effort to mentoring early and mid-career faculty, especially underrepresented faculty at UCLA. The notice of appointment stated:
“The work of mentoring is too often invisible and unrecognized, and such faculty contribute disproportionately to mentoring on campuses and deserve recognition. The society honors the mentorship of underrepresented faculty with respect to identities such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, and disability.”
Carol and Keith join 10 other UCLA full-time ladder faculty members in this group of inaugural members of the Faculty Mentoring Honor Society. This is a wonderful recognition of your commitment to supporting junior faculty to achieve their full potential as leaders. The list of beneficiaries of your mentorship is long and impressive.
