Prof. Leu was honored with this teaching and mentoring award at the end of the 2012-2013 academic year. She holds a joint appointment with LLILAS and with our department, and is also the Graduate Adviser in LLILAS. This fall she assumes the newly created role of Associate Director for Student Programs at LLILAS. She is seen here receiving the award from graduating student Mariel Perez-Santiago at the LLILAS Commencement. Prof. Leu said that she felt very touched by the award, particularly because it is decided by the graduating class.

Prof. Leu was congratulated by UT Chancellor, Francisco Cigarroa, whose daughter Cristina was in the graduating class.
