Professor Chin-Chuan Lee is the recipient of the 2014 B. Aubrey Fisher Mentorship Award, Francois Heinderyckx, President of the International Communication Association (ICA), has announced.
An award ceremony will be held in Seattle on May 24.
“I am humbled by this tremendous honor,” Professor Lee said, “This is the best gift I can give back to CityU that has treated me well.” He also expressed gratitude for the generous support received from colleagues, friends, and former students around the world.
The ICA initiated the Fisher Mentorship Award in 1998 to honor “outstanding scholars, teachers, and advisors who serve as role models in those capacities and who have had a major impact on the field of communication. Most importantly, recipients of this award have influenced the discipline through their former students, who themselves are important figures in the communication discipline.”
