Dr. Humbert has been recognized previously for her excellence in teaching but this award speaks to her dedication and commitment as a graduate supervisor. The best supervisors bring a varied complement of skills to their interactions with their graduate students and Dr. Humbert certainly provides her students with an enriching and engaging experience. From the simple things like providing prompt feedback to helping make community connections to further research interests, her students feel supported and encouraged at every stage of their academic careers and beyond as they pursue their career goals.
Her own research interests are community based and she has over 20 years of experience working in community settings. As a founding member of both Saskatoon and Saskatchewan in motion, Dr. Humbert is passionate about working to develop initiatives that will encourage healthy and active lifestyles. Building on her example, many of her students go on to assume leadership positions in their respective fields.
We celebrate and congratulate Dr. Louise Humbert for this well-deserved recognition!
