Noelle Hurd, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia has joined the editorial board of the Chronicle of Evidence-Based Mentoring. Noelle brings a wealth of experience and insight to this post. In her work, she has paid particular attention to racial identity and natural mentoring in the lives of disadvantaged African American adolescents, and the role mentors play in youth’s educational achievement. She has published extensively in top journals and is a recent recipient of the prestigious William T. Grant Scholar award through which she will examine how family and neighborhood settings support the development of natural mentoring relationships. See a Chronicle Q & A with Noelle and this recent Chronicle post summarizing one of Noelle’s impressive contributions to the field.
We are thrilled to welcome Noelle and look forward to her contributions.
