Sara Curran receives mentoring award
Posted July 12, 2001; 11:18 a.m.
for Women in Society has selected Sara Curran, assistant professor of sociology, to receive the group's mentoring award. The award is presented annually to a sociologist who offers outstanding academic, professional and personal mentoring to colleagues and students.
The honor recognizes mentoring as work that "frequently goes unnoticed but that is crucial to the success of individual sociologists, to the strength of specific departments, and to the vitality of the discipline as a whole," according to the SWS award committee.
"One of the things I enjoy most is doing research with other people or helping people to define their own research projects," Curran said. "I feel happy to give back to other people what I have gotten from my own mentors."
Curran was nominated by graduate students at Princeton.
