Dr. J. Christopher Clemens, professor of physics and astronomy, received the 2012 Faculty Award for Excellence in Doctoral Mentoring at the University’s recent Doctoral Hooding Ceremony. The Graduate School presents the annual award to a faculty member who has: encouraged graduate students to establish their own records of scholarly activity, provided a supportive environment that brings forth the very best from students, and achieved a successful record of graduate degree completion among students he or she has advised.

A nomination letter said the following of Clemens:

“Of the more than 100 K-12 teachers, undergraduate lecturers and graduate professors that have taught me in the past 23 years, Chris is, without hesitation, the most effective, compassionate, intelligent and entertaining educator I have had the privilege of learning from.”
