Congratulations to Paul Chouchana for receiving a 2021 Star Prize in Concentration Advising.

"This year especially, striving to be a good adviser has meant striving to be present. Being present means letting my students surprise me, take the conversation where they want to take it, and occasionally find myself compelled to say things I never expected to."

You can read more about Paul's comments and about this prize on the APO website.
