Dr. Jeff Leips, The Donald Creighton Outstanding Faculty AwardAt the GSA Awards Ceremony on May 6th, Dr. Jeff Leips was awarded The Donald Creighton Outstanding Faculty Award for the mentorship he provides to his graduate students at UMBC.
The Graduate Student Association has established the Donald Creighton Outstanding Faculty Award to honor an outstanding adviser, mentor, or professor who aids graduate students in their academic and professional pursuits during their time at UMBC. It’s not easy being a great adviser. It often requires long nights, longer papers to be edited, and a dedication to the mental and academic well-being of students. The receipt of this award is an adviser, mentor, or faculty member who cares about the holistic well-being of their students.
