Criminal Justice Professor Receives Faculty Mentor Award

Criminal Justice Professor Receives Faculty Mentor Award

During the Graduate Student Celebration - Winter 2020, presented by The Graduate School in collaboration with the Graduate Student Association, Dr. Naoki Kanaboshi was honored with the Faculty Mentor Award.

This award serves to acknowledge faculty who exemplify a deep commitment to fostering the professional and personal development of graduate students. This includes encouraging the development of individual talent through advising graduate level research, promoting professional development opportunities beyond the classroom, and providing successful transition from graduate studies to individual careers.

Malu writes: “In addition to performing his job at an exemplary level, Dr. Kanaboshi demonstrates an extraordinary commitment to the university and all his students. Dr. Kanaboshi excels as a teacher who links theory to practice and provides relevant real-world examples of how the course material relates to current events. In our graduate course, Dr. Kanaboshi consistently used case-studies to provide us with an opportunity to explore what we were covering in class. He established a positive classroom climate, and taught us the skills necessary to voice, listen to, and understand each other’s points of view.

Dr. Kanaboshi has demonstrated extraordinary commitment and effectiveness as a mentor, with persistent effort to provide meaningful assistance and mentorship to his students. I will always appreciate how Dr. Kanaboshi’s mentorship allowed me to follow my passion in teaching. Because of his support, I will be starting my PhD next fall where I expect to serve as a mentor to others.”
