Don Dorsey Excellence in Mentoring Awards

Nomination Deadline: Monday, Oct. 31, 5 p.m.

In 1998, the Faculty Mentor Program and the Educational Opportunity Programs established the “Don Dorsey Excellence in Mentoring Award” in recognition of Professor Don Dorsey’s invaluable contributions to mentoring and mentor training over two decades. Dr. Dorsey, Professor of Educational Psychology and Counseling, helped develop CSUN’s first mentor training program, and devoted himself as a mentor to innumerable students.

These awards are presented to faculty, staff, and administrators who have been exceptional mentors at CSUN. A reception honoring the recipients will be held Wednesday, Nov. 16, 5 to 7 p.m.

Nomination Guidelines: Faculty, Staff, and Administrators may be nominated for these awards.


  • Exceptional mentoring of past or present CSUN students
  • Holistic approach to mentoring, including academic and personal support and in informal and intangible ways
  • Proactive involvement in the university’s commitment to the success of students of diverse backgrounds and communities
