Congratulations to Professor Elisabeth Gwinn on receiving the 2019 Lifetime Mentor Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).  The AAAS Lifetime Mentor Award was established in 1991 and honors researchers who have mentored a significant number of underrepresented Ph.D. students, impacting the climate of a department, college or institution.  Since becoming the Physics Department's first female professor in 1989, Beth Gwinn has been a pioneer in the department; her efforts throughout the years have had a trasformative impact on fostering a more inclusive environment for physics at UCSB. 

Professor Gwinn will receive the award during the 185th AAAS Annual Meeting on February 17, 2019.
