The Jan Phillips Mentor Award was established to recognize exceptional mentoring of ETSU students by a faculty, staff, alumnus, or a supervisor in a community-based learning experience (such as an internship, co-op, or service-learning experience). A mentor is a person who has demonstrated exceptional guidance in a student's personal development through an ongoing and nurturing relationship.
Those eligible for the award include ETSU employees, graduate students, and those who have a contractual agreement with ETSU, such as campus ministers, internship, service-learning or Cooperative Education supervisors, student organization advisor, etc.
Nominations are accepted from currently enrolled students, and/or faculty/staff not related to the nominee.
Criteria used by the selection committee includes:
-Mentoring relationship of at least one semester and within the last four years
-Exceptional effort with students above and beyond job duties
-Strength of responses to questions on nomination form
*Please note that individuals who have received the Jan Phillips Mentor Award in past years are not eligible for this recommendation a second time.
