The John L. Sullivan Mentor Award
The International Society of Political Psychology presents the John L. Sullivan Mentor Award annually. John L. Sullivan, Professor of Political Science, Emeritus, University of Minnesota, was central in establishing the political psychology program at the University of Minnesota as a joint venture of both the psychology and political science departments. His work has been central to the field for several decades, and his students and their students now form the core of the field. This award therefore honors faculty who, like Sullivan, have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to and a history of success in the mentorship of undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. The John L. Sullivan Mentor Award is for faculty engaged in the field of political psychology.
Sullivan aided undergraduate and graduate students, collaborators and faculty colleagues beyond count. He did so quietly and in ways often unnoticed even by those he helped, but most who know him are aware of the impact he had. In brief, his mentoring took many forms, but a common thread in John Sullivan’s legacy is his ability to form collaborations based on equal status among all participants. The program was and remains a leader among political psychology interdisciplinary programs.
To honor those who have distinguished themselves as mentors, we seek nominations of faculty who have demonstrated excellent mentorship in multiple ways that may include:
Recipients of The John L. Sullivan Mentor Award will receive an award of $500.
