Faculty Mentors

From the moment Fellows arrive on campus, they build meaningful relationships with professors across disciplines, contributing to their development as scholars, researchers, and global citizens.

Lucas Puente – One of my favorite aspects of UGA and the Foundation Fellowship has been my extensive interaction with faculty. The university’s professors are undoubtedly its biggest asset and have been fundamental to my intellectual growth and professional development. I am extremely thankful for the support and advice that my professors offered me throughout my time at UGA. I know these relationships will continue far into the future.faculty mentor and students

Marianne Ligon – There are so many professors at UGA who have been supportive of my academic pursuits. I worked in the lab of Dr. Michael Terns starting my first year on campus and developed an extensive research project under his mentorship. Dr. Claiborne Glover, also in biochemistry, was a great resource, always willing to have a talk and give some quick career advice. And Dr. Kim Klonowski served as my UGA faculty contact while I conducted research abroad at Oxford University. I continued that work with Dr. K in her graduate-level Advanced Immunology class in my last semester.

Deep Shah – I had many educational opportunities before college, but it wasn't until I came to UGA and met Dr. Loch Johnson that I developed a vision for my life. Though previous mentors had helped cultivate my interests in science and health policy, Dr. Johnson demanded more than academic excellence. He expected me to use my gifts for others, and he helped me shape a career path toward that goal. Others have Dr. Johnson to thank for their careers in national security, education, even the arts. And, in an increasingly selfish age, our communities will have Dr. Johnson to thank for the commitment to service he inspired in us all.

Tracy Yang – I first met Dr. Phaedra Corso as a Roosevelt Scholar when she served as my faculty mentor. Her guidance and advice helped me craft a more thorough policy paper. An extremely busy and popular professor, Dr. Corso has always graciously made time to help me, whether by providing a recommendation or helping me flesh out my ideas for a policy memo. I also took her Health Policy and Economic Evaluation class, and her creative teaching style made her one of my favorite professors.
