The extraordinary mentorship of Bill Boyd

Bill Boyd’s life and work made a significant impact on education research. Of his many contributions deserving celebration, it is his extraordinary mentorship now remembered by students and colleagues throughout his distinguished career. He excelled in connecting people with others and he provided insightful advice and guidance to junior faculty and students at Penn State and around the world.

As efforts unfold to honor the memory of Bill Boyd, perhaps the most fitting is the creation of the William Lowe Boyd Mentoring National Educational Politics Workshop. Also noteworthy is the annual William Lowe Boyd Mentoring Award sponsored by the Education Policy Studies Student Association at Penn State University (Bill was the first recipient in 2008). While the idea of mentorship can assume many forms, this essay examines how Bill’s life experiences and personal attributes contributed to his mentorship of hundreds of students and colleagues.
