Dr. Nicole Lynn Johnson, assistant professor of counseling psychology was awarded the The Hillman Award for Excellence in Graduate Advising.

The award recognizes excellence in teaching, research or advancing the interests of Lehigh University. In that context, this award recognizes exemplary student advising defined as either: a) Guiding students through their exploration and pursuit of an academic course of study; or b) Assisting students in the development and/or completion of research related to their degree program. 

In recognition of their enduring commitment to the university community in the 2019-2020 academic year, Lehigh has awarded its most prestigious honors, the Lehigh University Awards, to 19 members of its faculty and staff. 

“We are deeply appreciative of the extraordinary dedication and exceptional effort our faculty and staff exhibit each and every day,” Provost Nathan Urban said. “We applaud our award winners, who have gone above and beyond in their commitment to the university while making a positive impact on the Lehigh community.”

The awards are typically presented each spring at the Lehigh Appreciation Dinner at Stabler Arena, but due to COVID-19 restrictions and health and safety concerns, the annual dinner was not held in April for the 2019-2020 academic year.
