Dr. Laurence J. Parker Wins Distinguished Mentor Award

We are proud to announce that Dr. Laurence J. Parker has won the University of Utah's 2021 Distinguished Mentor Award. This award recognizes Dr. Parker's mentorship of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.  

2021 Distinguished Mentor Award: Laurence J. Parker

One of the most rewarding and at times challenging roles of being a faculty member is the mentoring of the next generation of professors, educators, and researchers. That's why the University of Utah Graduate School established the Distinguished Mentor Award in 2006 to honor and encourage the considerable efforts and accomplishments of faculty who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to the mentorship of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. While this award is open to university faculty from any discipline, Dr. Laurence J. Parker was this year's awardee due to his commitment and excellency in mentorship that has seen graduate students and postdocs flourish under his guidance. 
Dr. Parker has also met the other requirements of the award: effectively guiding graduate students and postdoctoral scholars throughout their professional training in a continuing, multifaceted partnership sustained by mutual respect and concern and having a broad impact on mentorship by facilitating communities or building infrastructure for mentorship of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Laurence J. Parker.
