OSU Mentors

Posted by The College of Science at OSU on December 9, 2008


“It’s very difficult to have one model that you follow with all students,” says Bottomley. “You have to see students individually, giving them opportunities to recognize their own strengths.”

Mentorship is not a new thing for Peter Bottomley, professor of microbiology in the College of Science. Back in 2006, Peter became the very first recipient of the Excellence in Graduate Mentoring Award, given by the OSU Graduate School.

These days, Peter is part of the Mentor Program at OSU. He and former student Shawn Starkenburg (’08) are featured on banners around campus, and here on the Mentor website. They also appeared in the Summer 2008 edition of Terra Magazine.
