June 15, 2020 — SCTL Founding Director and Professor Anne Goodchild was awarded the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering’s Outstanding Mentor Award for 2020, announced by Chair Laura Lowes during this year’s Graduation celebration. The award is determined by a vote of graduating students.

“I am incredibly honored to receive recognition from the students in the form of the Department Outstanding Mentor Award,” said Goodchild. “Students should be at the center of all we do at the University, and knowing I’m able to contribute to their development in some way gives me great satisfaction.”

Here are some quotes from Goodchild’s nominations:

“I feel like I learn so much from her. She lets me know exactly what I should work on to flourish my improvement. I feel very lucky to be her mentee and be taught by her. She asks me questions and lets me notice my own mistakes.”

“She is willing to talk openly and candidly with any student who walks through her door, not just her own students. In class she pushes her students to do the best they can and she teaches with a humor and joy of learning that is infectious. As a student trying to find my own interests, her passion for her work is inspiring.”

Congratulations to Professor Goodchild!
