Assistant Professor José Pablo Vázquez-Medina has received a 2023 Graduate Assembly Faculty Mentor Award. Vázquez-Medina was selected because of his outstanding commitment to mentoring, advising, and supporting graduate students. This is a very competitive award with only three faculty recipients for the entire campus. The campus leadership said, "these distinguished individuals, nominated by faculty colleagues and current and former graduate students and undergraduates, were selected from a pool of exceptional faculty and graduate students on the Berkeley campus and exemplify the values and best practices of effective mentoring that are core to our university community." The award ceremony will be on Wednesday, April 26, 2023.
