Professor Tamara Davis, Chair of Bryn Mawr’s Department of Biology, was recently awarded the 2014 Outstanding Mentor Award in the mid-career category by the biology division of the Council on Undergraduate Research.

In the above video, Davis talks about the important role mentors have played in her career and why she feels it’s so important to serve as a mentor to her own students.

“One of the great advantages of being at a small liberal arts college is that students really do get to know the faculty,” says Davis. “My advice for students is to find a faculty member they feel comfortable with and to seek out that person as a mentor.”
