The Department of Linguistics has the pleasure of congratulating Prof. Rebecca Scarborough, who has just received an Outstanding Faculty Mentor Award from the Graduate School, in recognition of her work as both a dissertation advisor and graduate director. The award letter from Dean Adler reads in part:
I am very pleased to inform you that you have been chosen as a winner of the 2020-2021 Outstanding Faculty Mentor Award. The … nomination dossier is full of praise for the help and encouragement you give to graduate students. I am always happy to learn about outstanding faculty who are willing to give so much of their time, energy, and intellect in supporting graduate students and the mission of graduate education.
Prof. Scarborough was especially praised for her support and innovation in the face of pandemic shocks of many kinds. We in the Department of Linguistics are lucky to have such a competent and caring Associate Chair for Graduate Studies!
Congratulations, Rebecca, on this well-deserved honor!
