Larissa Brunner Huber has won UNC Charlotte’s Harshini V. de Silva Graduate Mentor Award, given to a staff member for outstanding work in mentoring students.
Huber, an associate professor of epidemiology in UNCC’s Department of Public Health Sciences, is “lauded by her students, both present and former, for offering an unparalleled level of support and guidance,” said Provost Joan Lorden.
One student wrote in a nomination letter that Huber spent Thanksgiving Day helping make final edits in the student’s work.
And, added the student, Huber “responded to panicked messages I’d sent regarding statistical analysis syntax errors, while at the doctor’s office.”
Several students noted that Huber had maintained a high level of support despite dealing with medical problems.
She has been at UNCC since 2005. She earned her bachelors degree from Syracuse University, her masters from the University of Massachusetts, and her doctorate from Emory University.
