Nominate an Outstanding Faculty Research Mentor!
Hunter's Outstanding Undergraduate Research Sponsor Awards honor faculty who do an outstanding job mentoring Hunter's undergraduate students in research and scholarship activities outside of the traditional classroom setting.
Students and faculty are welcome to submit nominations for outstanding faculty mentors from all disciplines! Self-nominations are also welcome and, in previous years, the faculties who have been nominated by both their colleagues and their students have been the most compelling nominees. Please note that these awards are not meant to honor excellent classroom teaching, but to recognize faculty whose outstanding mentorship extends beyond the classroom.
Submit your online nominations here.
And don't forget to register for the Undergraduate Research Conference! Registration is free and those who pre-register will have conference materials waiting for them at the registration table. Register here!
Deadline: Wednesday, February 25
Art in the Aftermath
The Aspen Institute Arts Program presents Art in the Aftermath: Creative Voices Reckon With the Return from War; with Phil Klay, author of Redeployment, winner of the 2014 National Book Award for Fiction and Tim Donley, singer of the MusiCorps Wounded Warrior Band.
Phil Klay's Redeployment was recently recommended on Fareed Zakaria's GPS by Barack Obama. Join Klay and Aspen Institute Arts Program director, Damian Woetzel for a private roundtable discussion to learn about how Klay has used writing to come to grips with his past experiences in the Iraq war and the aftermath of his service. In addition to winning the National Book Award, Klay was named one of the National Book Foundation's "5 Under 35" last year. Don't miss this opportunity to meet one of our most exciting writers and to learn from him about craft, commitment, and creativity. Open only to Students 5:00 - 6:00 pm.
Tim Donley will then join Klay for a discussion about how they have used their respective modes of creative expression to process their experiences with war. Donley will perform with MusiCorps founder and executive director, Arthur Bloom. A book signing with Klay will follow.
