Williams-Qualls-Spratlen Multicultural Mentoring Award of Excellence

Nominations Due: May 1, 2012

The Williams-Qualls-Spratlen (WQS) Multicultural Mentoring Award of Excellence carries on the legacy of three world class marketing scholars, educators, and mentors of people of color: Jerome Williams, Prudential Chair in Business and Research Director-The Center for Urban Entrepreneurship & Economic Development (CUEED), Rutgers Business School – Newark and New Brunswick; William (Bill) Qualls, Professor of Marketing, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; and Thaddeus H. Spratlen, Emeritus Professor of Marketing, at the Foster School of Business, University of Washington.

The award will be given to a marketing professor who has made research contributions, such as publications in leading journals, and should also be making teaching contributions as a mentor to students and professors of color from underrepresented groups in the field of marketing, particularly, students and professors who are African American, Hispanic, and Native American.

It is anticipated that the award recipient will have had a sustained career commitment to mentoring, a significant positive impact on his/her mentees’ careers, and through his/her mentees have advanced research and education on issues where racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity intersect with the discipline and practice of marketing.
