Faculty Mentors from Hofstra History
Hofstra alumni are invited to nominate a full-time faculty member who supervised their advanced undergraduate research and guided them in both professional and intellectual ways toward developing their own ideas, pursuing their research, drawing conclusions and presenting those ideas in public through presentation or publication. Model mentors from Hofstra’s history will be profiled in each issue of Hofstra Horizons of Undergraduate Research. The chosen model mentor will have had a great impact on undergraduate research at the advanced level of any discipline (in terms of the number of students or the degree of impact on an individual: the breadth or depth of influence and engagement). An historical perspective from the present will be most welcome: how has the nominating student developed since then professionally? Looking back, did that undergraduate research experience have an impact and shape the future?
Nomination letters should not exceed 500 words and should emphasize the most salient qualities of the faculty mentors influence and engagement with background information and anecdotal illustrations, if possible, to show how that mentor made a substantial difference toward enabling the success of a particular student or group of students.
With questions, please contact the coordinator of Undergraduate Research and editor of Hofstra Horizons of Undergraduate Research, Neil H. Donahue via email.
