Great Supervisor Week Mentions

Each year graduate students are encouraged to give kudos to their supervisors through social media and our website as part of #GreatSupervisorWeek. Below are students who mentioned this supervisor since the initiative was started in 2017.

 

I am so fortunate to have a pair of supportive and caring supervisors. @NJLachowsky and @ethicalquandary. They do an amazing job of pushing me to be more reflective and engaged with what it means to engage with community #greatsupervisor #ubc
