Dr. Christine Grant, associate dean of faculty advancement for the College of Engineering and professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has been honored with the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) Mentor Award and is one of the first recipients of the new American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Pioneers of Diversity Award for her distinguished service to the organization.

The AAAS Mentor Award recognizes AAAS members who have mentored significant numbers of underrepresented students (women, minorities and persons with disabilities) working toward a Ph.D. in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, and who have also demonstrated scholarship, activism and community building on behalf of underrepresented groups in STEM fields. This award is directed toward individuals in the mid-stage of their careers, defined by roughly 25 years of mentoring experience.

The Pioneers of Diversity Award recognizes individuals who pioneered the formation of the AIChE Minority Affairs Committee (MAC) and/or rendered continuous services to the committee. The Minority Affairs Committee selected Grant as a recipient of the inaugural award, citing her role as a former chair of the committee, her distinguished service to AIChE and her leadership in helping to create a more inclusive institute and profession.
