Professor receives mentor award

Lloyd H. Barrow, a professor of science education, received this past summer the Graduate Faculty Mentor Award. Barrow advises doctoral and master’s students in the College of Education.

“It is important for me to be an effective listener before I provide advice, to understand what their long-term goals are so we may figure out the smaller goals that will need to be accomplished to achieve all their objectives,” Barrow said.

“ ‘Caring,’ ‘student-centered’ and ‘knowledgeable’ were words that appeared again and again in his nomination packet,” said Lee Wilkins, faculty fellow with the Graduate School.
