Linsey Moyer receives McDonald Mentoring Award

ADUS recognized for dedication to student success

Linsey Moyer, Associate Director of Undergraduate Studies (ADUS) and Lecturer in Biomedical Engineering, has received the Capers W. McDonald and Marion K. McDonald Award for Excellence in Mentoring and Advising.

Established in 2008 by Capers and Marion McDonald, the award recognizes exemplary mentors and advisors who have significantly and consistently supported the personal and professional development of others. Moyer joined SEAS as an ADUS in the summer of 2016, and has served as a mentor to undergraduate students interested in bio- and medical-related engineering areas. She teaches the introductory courses “Quantitative Physiology as a Basis for Bioengineering” (ES 53) as well as “Introduction to Biomedical Imaging and Devices” (BE 128). She also is a core member of the teaching staff for “Engineering Design Projects” (ES 100) and has assisted undergraduates with countless capstone theses.

“Linsey is the ‘glue’ for Bioengineering at Harvard,” wrote Moyer’s nominators. “She goes above and beyond her role as ADUS to advise all bioengineering concentrators. Not just in a ‘signing study card’ sense, but from first-year (e.g., coordinating activities to promote Bioengineering to potential concentrators) through graduation and beyond. In this current crisis, she has also been a vocal advocate for students with personal and family challenges that threaten to disrupt their academic progress.”
