Scribner Mentoring Award, presented by the University Council for Educational Administration, a consortium of higher education institutions committed to advancing the preparation and practice of educational leaders for the benefit of schools and children, in November of 2014.  Dr. Lugg has served as a Professor of Education at the Graduate School of Education at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, since 1996. She is the first professor from Rutgers to receive the award. The Jay D. Scribner Mentoring Award honors Educational Leadership faculty who have made a substantive contribution to the field by mentoring the next generation of students into roles as university research professors, while also recognizing the important role(s) mentors play in supporting and advising junior faculty. This award is named after Jay D. Scribner whose prolific career spans over four decades and who has mentored a host of doctoral students into the profession while advising and supporting countless junior professors throughout this same time. Of particular note is Scribner's unique ability to reach across racial, class, and gender differences in his mentorship — nurturing scholars from under-represented backgrounds into a profession largely homogeneous in composition.
