Graduate Spotlight: May ElSherif

We proudly congratulate May ElSherif on winning the Fiona and Michael Goodchild Graduate Mentoring Award, presented by the UCSB Graduate Division. ElSherif is one of only three recipients of this distinction campus-wide for the 2017 academic year. Selections are made by the Academic Senate Graduate Council.

The purpose of the award is threefold:

  • To recognize graduate students who have distinguished themselves as mentors of undergraduates;
  • To acknowledge campus initiatives to improve the educational experience of undergraduates and graduate students by integrating research into undergraduate education at UCSB;
  • To encourage others to become involved in these research efforts.
