It is our pleasure to announce that Prof. Sung Ha Kang is being recognized for her important contributions to mentoring junior faculty in the School of Mathematics with the CoS Faculty Mentor Award.

Prof. Kang has provided information that played a vital role in speeding up my research development and collaborations. Prof. Kang is a role model of professorship too, which means so much more than being just a  great researcher.
