Criteria include selflessness in their time commitment, special efforts to develop their students as professionals, and the maintenance of strong relationships beyond graduation. 

One of Dr. Hyer’s former students, Kali Thomas, PhD, provided this quote in support of her nomination: "I always say that the one thing that has been instrumental in my achievments has been having a strong, female figure in my corner. Someone who believes in me. Someone who advocates for me. Someone who cares about me. Someone who recognizes my potential. Someone who makes me believe in myself. That person, for me, has and continues to be Dr. Kathryn Hyer." [More]
