2018 Rosemary Schraer Mentoring Award Information


The Rosemary Schraer Mentoring Award, created in June 1994, recognizes a University employee for mentoring by advising, facilitating, encouraging and/or paving the way for others to recognize and realize their potential in both personal and professional endeavors. The family, friends, and colleagues of Dr. Rosemary Schraer, a former associate provost of Penn State and former chancellor of the University of California, Riverside, established the award.

Consideration will be given to any employees (administrators, faculty, technical service or staff members) who have a record of outstanding mentoring service that goes beyond the requirements of their employment duties and responsibilities. (View list of past awardees.)

Note: Employees must be in good standing to be considered for commission awards. For University activities such as commissions and award programs, faculty or staff members are considered to be in ‘good standing’ if they are meeting the expectations of their positions and have not been the recipient of recent discipline. Individuals should also exhibit qualities such as civility, collegiality, and a commitment to the overall success of their department.

Applications will be reviewed by the Commission for Women. Thank you.
