SeiboldDavid Seibold, U of California – Santa Barbara, was selected to receive the prominent B. Aubrey Fisher Mentorship Award at ICA’s 63rd Annual Conference in London. The Award recognizes 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, by virtue both of their own accomplishments and those of their former students.

“Dave’s warmth, energy, humor, and humility have made him a very special person to all who have worked with him – many of whom may not have been consciously aware that they were benefiting from his mentorship. He has the ability to inspire those around him whether in one-on-one interaction, small group discussion, or in larger meetings,” said Noshir Contractor, Professor of Communication Studies at Northwestern University.

During his more than 35 years as a communication scholar, David Seibold has been an exemplary role model as a scholar, teacher and advisor. He has been an outstanding mentor supporting his students and junior colleagues during all stages of their careers. His scholarly work has been highly recognized and he has received many teaching awards. However, what gave Prof. Seibold the edge was the impact of his former students who have become successful senior Communication scholars in notable universities. His former students have also made significant impacts through their leadership in major communication organizations. Thus, we celebrate that Seibold has made a major contribution to communication studies by not only encouraging young scholars to do excellent research but also through their service to the Communication discipline.

Seibold was presented with the award on 19 June 2013 during ICA’s 63rd Annual International Conference in London, United Kingdom.
