Congratulations to our very own Dr. Chance Lewis. He is the 2016 recipient of the Harshini V. de Silva Graduate Mentor Award. This prestigious award was established in memory of Dr. Harshini V. de Silva, an associate professor of biology, who was noted for her deep dedication to the academic and professional development of graduate students. Each year, the Chancellor’s Office and the Graduate School present this award to a full-time member of the graduate faculty who manifest these qualities of outstanding graduate mentoring.
