Noora Lori, Boston University, Pardee School

Noora LoriAssistant Professor of International Relations at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies, was named as a recipient of the 2016 College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) Templeton Award for Excellence in Student Advising.

The award is given annually to three CAS professors for excellence in advising, and is the result of student nominations through the Boston University Office of Student Academic Life.

Lori said the award carries a lot of meaning, as she was nominated by students.

“I am very grateful and proud to receive the Templeton Award for Excellence in Student Advising from the College of Arts and Sciences this year,” Lori said. “It is a special honor because it comes from the students. If my student advising has been effective, it is largely because I was welcomed into this community by such intelligent, passionate, and driven students. It was already a privilege and gift to get to work with them—this is the cherry on top.”

Pardee School Dean Adil Najam congratulated Lori on the award, and commended her on her dedication to her students.

“All of us at the Pardee School are delighted to see Noora Lori’s dedication to our students being recognized with this award,” Najam said. “She is part of a stellar young faculty who embrace and foster the vibrant and socially aware student body at the Pardee School.”
