Carol Hood, physics professor at Cal State San Bernardino, has been named the university’s top faculty advisor for the 2020-’21 academic year.
Hood learned of the honor by Zoom, where she received cheers and congratulations from more than 50 university administrators, faculty and staff, according to a statement on the university’s website.
“This is indeed a very special occasion,” President Tomas D. Morales said during the presentation. “I’ve seen your passion, your commitment and your dedication to student success and providing really extraordinary mentoring and career and life guidance. I couldn’t think of a better faculty advisor to recognize.”
Hood joined CSUSB in 2012 as an assistant professor and assistant director of the Murillo Family Observatory.
About one-third of the university’s physics majors choose Hood as their advisor, according to the statement.
