Dr. Suning Wang, Department of Chemistry at Queens University, has won the first Canadian Association for Graduate Studies Award for Outstanding Graduate Mentorship.

CAGS’ President Susan Porter stated: “There were many extraordinary nominees for this award, and the competition was extremely difficult to adjudicate. Dr. Wang’s record and the sincere gratitude and enthusiasm of your students for the mentorship you provided them was truly inspiring and stood out as exemplary. CAGS is delighted to have Dr. Wang serve as the inaugural role model for this award!”

The Canadian Association for Graduate Studies instituted this award as an indication of the high value we place on graduate mentorship. In highlighting and celebrating mentors who exemplify all that is best in this form of pedagogy, we also hope to inspire others to reach that level of achievement.
