Nominations sought for 2022 Rosemary Schraer Mentoring Award

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Nominations are currently being sought for the 2022 Rosemary Schraer Mentoring Award, established in 1994 by family, friends and colleagues of Rosemary Schraer, a former associate provost at Penn State and former chancellor of the University of California, Riverside. 

The award is presented each year to a University employee, regardless of gender, who exemplifies Schraer's giving of herself as a mentor and who has voluntarily, over a period of time, helped others recognize and achieve their potential. Consideration is given to employees (administrators, faculty, technical service or staff members) who have a record of outstanding mentoring service that goes beyond the requirements of their employment duties and responsibilities. 

The Commission for Women reviews award nominations and selects the winner of the award. The recipient of this year’s Rosemary Schraer Mentoring Award will be honored at the Faculty and Staff Awards Ceremony on the University Park campus.

Click here to submit nominations. Submissions will be accepted until 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 17.
