Four Princeton faculty members have been named the recipients of Graduate Mentoring Awards by the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning and will be honored during the Graduate School's hooding ceremony on Monday, June 2.

They are: John Cooper, a Stuart Professor of Philosophy; Luigi Martinelli, associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering; Thomas Silhavy, the Warner-Lambert Parke-Davis Professor of Molecular Biology; and Robert Wuthnow, the Gerhard Andlinger '52 Professor of Social Sciences.

The McGraw Center, together with the Graduate School, instituted the award last year to recognize Princeton faculty members whose work with graduate students is particularly outstanding. It is intended to honor faculty members who nurture the intellectual, professional and personal growth of their graduate students.

One faculty member in each academic division (humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering) was chosen for the award by a committee of faculty members and graduate students. In addition to being honored at the ceremony, each will receive a commemorative gift.
