Honor a Faculty Mentor Today

The Master's Student Research Group (MSRG) holds an annual conference to showcase the wonderful research that the students at John Jay have been conducting throughout the year. John Jay students produce great research - research that is presented at conferences around the nation! While we as students work very hard on our research projects and class assignments, it is safe to say that we usually have some behind the scenes help along the way. Faculty participation in student driven research is an important concept that makes John Jay such a great learning environment. Providing support, guidance, and advice, the faculty at John Jay do a wonderful job mentoring students and providing them with opportunities to succeed and achieve their goals. 

Each year MSRG presents a faculty member with the Faculty Mentorship Award.  This award is given to a faculty research mentor elected by students presenting at the MSRG conference for his or her dedication to students through research mentorship.  You may nominate your thesis advisor or a faculty mentor with whom you have worked closely on research.  This award will be given to the elected faculty member at this year's MA conference. Please fill out the google form below, nominating a faculty member at John Jay that you think has gone above and beyond this year.

We will be accepting nominations until April 25. Please note that you do not have to be presenting at the MSRG conference in order to nominate a faculty member! 

Please take the time to fill out this form and nominate a faculty member. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding the 2017 Faculty Mentorship Award or the MSRG conference in general, please do not hesitate to email msrg@jjay.cuny.edu.
