Dr. Levon Esters was awarded a national Faculty Mentor of the Year award at the Southern Regional Education Board annual Institute on Teaching and Mentoring in October. Doctoral students Torrie Cropps and Quincy Clark nominated Dr. Esters for the award.

"Dr. Esters works tirelessly, yet effortlessly, at helping students achieve an excellent academic and professional graduate experience," Clark wrote in her nomination letter.

"Because his students speak so highly of him, many Black graduate students from other departments reach out to him for guidance and support," Cropps wrote.

The Institute offers training and support for underrepresented minority Ph.D. students to finish their doctorates and become campus faculty, addressing the nation's continuing shortage of faculty of color.
