CSWE Women's Council Honors Associate Professor Victoria Stanhope as a Social Work Education Mentor

Silver School Associate Professor Dr. Victoria Stanhope was honored for her outstanding mentorship through the Mentor Recognition Program of the Council on Social Work Education’s Council on the Role and Status of Women in Social Work Education (Women’s Council). The Mentor Recognition Program “honors mentors who have made a difference and support the activities of the Women’s Council.”

Dr. Stanhope was nominated for the honor by her mentees Mimi Choy-Brown and Kendall Atterbury, who are both Silver School PhD candidates. They wrote, “Dr. Stanhope consistently fosters the efforts and ambitions of women just beginning their academic careers in social work. Her thoughtful support, emphasis on process, critical eye and intellectual openness provide the room for emerging female scholars to develop into independent and critical scholars. As she continues to enjoy a notable and successful academic career with the full life, Dr. Stanhope is an exemplary role model for budding scholars.”

Along with her fellow honorees, Dr. Stanhope was recognized on November 4, 2016 at the Women’s Council Networking Breakfast at the Council on Social Work Education’s 62nd Annual Program Meeting in Atlanta.
