Monroy-Hernández is one of four faculty to receive the award this year. Recipients will be honored during the Graduate School’s Hooding ceremony. 

A faculty member since 2021, Monroy-Hernández focuses on human-computer interaction and social computing. Students found Monroy-Hernández to be approachable and warm, and they were grateful for the invaluable guidance he provided as they made their way through the academic world.

“He was always available to meet and provided actionable feedback,” said one student. “He was also kind and supportive. Those who know Andrés will agree he has an amazing ring of positive energy. For these reasons, I really enjoyed working with him even when research was hard.”

Praising his encouragement and kindness, one student noted, “Andrés is also a very heartwarming and positive person. He is the type of person who will ask you about your favorite ice cream place and your favorite basketball team. ... He will do everything he can to help you.”

Another student observed, “André’s mentorship extends beyond academic and professional growth; he is our friend.” The student added that Monroy-Hernández “is a role model whose influence has been pivotal in my development as a researcher and individual."
