BME Research Assistant Professor Virginie Papadopoulou was recently selected for a 2022 Carolina Women’s Leadership Council Faculty Mentoring Award. Sponsored by the Carolina Women’s Leadership Council (CWLC), the Faculty Mentoring Awards recognize outstanding faculty members who go the extra mile to guide, mentor and teach. Each year the Council recognizes three recipients with an award of $5,000 each in the categories of faculty-to-undergraduate student mentoring, faculty-to-graduate student mentoring, and faculty-to-junior faculty mentoring.
The Faculty Mentoring Awards Committee was greatly impressed by Dr Papadopoulou’s outstanding mentoring to undergraduate mentees. Both students and faculty colleagues highly praised her commitment to the highest standards of teaching and mentoring support. “You have clearly provided your mentees with a rich and supportive environment for higher learning, and you have been an exceptionally positive role model for their careers. We would like to honor your achievements, commitment, and passion for your craft with this award,” said Christopher Clemens, Provost of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Recipients of this year’s Faculty Mentoring Awards will be honored at the Eve Carson Lecture on September 28, 2022. Congratulations to Prof Virginie Papadopoulou on this well deserved award!
