Marsh receives 2018 Dean's Award for Excellence in Mentoring

Monday, January 29, 2018

The Duke Department of Psychology & Neuroscience congratulates Dr. Elizabeth Marsh, who has been named a recipient of the 2018 Dean's Award for Excellence in Mentoring from Duke's Graduate School. She will be honored, along with other recipients, at a ceremony on Wednesday, March 28, at Sarah P. Duke Gardens.

The Graduate School presents the Dean’s Awards for Excellence in Mentoring to recognize the considerable efforts and accomplishments of faculty and graduate students who consistently serve as effective mentors. Designed to allow the university community to identify faculty and graduate students who embody both the letter and spirit of mentoring, these awards are important examples of the university’s continuing efforts to cultivate a culture of mentoring.

Dr. Marsh is being honored both for her standard of excellence in mentoring of her own students (past and present) and for her many contributions to graduate education in P&N, more broadly. Those contributions include the development of the first-year seminar that acclimatizes our students to Duke and P&N, the guidance on NSF fellowship applications that has helped so many of our students gain that prestigious award, and her informal mentoring of generations of our students. She has been an outstanding role model for our students – and an exemplar of excellence in mentoring for her faculty colleagues.

Congratulations on this prestigious award!
