The College of Natural and Applied Sciences (CNAS) is excited to announce that Dr. Kyoungtae Kim, associate dean of CNAS, recently received the 2021 Outstanding Thesis Advisor Award.
Kim’s advising efforts
Throughout 2020, Kim directed six theses of graduate students.
Under his guidance, the graduate students conducted important research and received approval from both their committees and the Graduate College with few necessary revisions.
“The COVID-19 pandemic introduced many unique challenges this past year and demanded greater flexibility in teaching and advising,” Kim said. “I’m grateful to my students, who made receiving this award possible by maintaining dedication to completing their theses.
“Their efforts are key to building our university’s excellent academic reputation.”
Kim will be recognized for his outstanding advising efforts at the virtual 2021 Annual Frank Einhellig Graduate Interdisciplinary Forum Awards Ceremony May 1.
About the award
The award serves to recognize the work of thesis advisors who have demonstrated a high level of interest in and expectation for their students.

Congratulations, Dr. Kim!
