Schaeffer Center Director Receives 2012 Mellon Mentoring Award
Dana Goldman, Director of the Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics, is one of this year’s recipients of the USC Mellon Mentoring Awards for Faculty Mentoring Faculty. The USC Mellon Mentoring Awards honor individual faculty for helping build a supportive academic environment at USC through faculty-to-student and faculty-to-faculty mentoring. The main criterion for the award is the demonstration of a continued commitment to mentoring, and effectiveness in mentoring.
Individual Faculty Awards were given to faculty members who were determined to consistently: offer sound counsel and valuable information to their mentees in order to advance and develop the mentee’s own path to academic and professional success; generously share their valuable time and expertise in critiquing the mentee’s work; help to create a vital and engaged academic community in their school and at USC; involve peers in publications, grants and conferences, as well as readily sharing knowledge of such opportunities; make others aware of the contributions and value of their mentees; and serve as role models for their colleagues by maintaining high standards for excellence within their own discipline and at the level of the larger University.
