Gamze Ozogul, Assistant Professor in Instructional Systems Technology, has been awarded the Outstanding Faculty Mentor Award from the Center of Excellence for Women in Technology. The award is given annually to an IU faculty member who displays noteworthy mentorship and is nominated by their students or peers.

“I am very honored to be nominated by my students,” Ozogul said. “I am very fortunate to work closely on a daily basis with these amazing students, and get to know them and mentor them during their journey at IU.”

The award is the second faculty mentor award Ozogul has been recently given.

“I mentor my students through setting high expectations, supporting them through those expectations, providing active listening, and being available to them. It is very special to be recognized by them,” Ozogul said. My hope for my students is to transcend our mentee-mentor experiences to their own students, colleagues, and to who all they interact with in various areas of life and all around the world.”
