Dr. Louise K. Stein, Professor of Musicology (also Medieval and Early Modern Studies, Latin American Studies, and European Studies) has won the 2013 John H. D'Arms Faculty Award for Distinguished Graduate Mentoring in the Humanities, presented by Rackham Graduate School. The award honors Dr. Stein's immense breadth of scholarly work, her many successes as a scholar and teacher at the University of Michigan, and, most importantly, her exceptional mentoring of her doctoral students.
Dr. Stein is the third professor in the Department of Musicology to win this award. She joins Professor Emeritus Judith Becker, who was recognized in 1995, and Professor Roland John Wiley, who was recognized in 2003.
The John H. D'Arms Faculty Award was created in honor of John H. D'Arms, Dean of the Graduate School and Vice Provost for Academic Affairs (1985-1995), to recognize scholars and/or creative artists of extraordinary depth and breadth who have provided their students with the quality of support that only remarkable learning, coupled with boundless generosity of spirit, can bestow. Nominees for this award must be tenured faculty members in the humanities and have directed a substantial number of dissertations over the past several years.
