Bindu Mayi Wins Professor of the Year STUEY

Bindu Mayi, Ph.D., M.Sc., professor of microbiology, won the Professor of the Year Award at the 22nd Annual NSU Student Life Achievement (STUEY) Awards presented at a virtual ceremony on April 23. For those unfamiliar with the STUEY Awards, the event was created in 2000 to honor the people and organizations that best exemplify the NSU Core Values of academic excellence, student centered, scholarship/research, integrity, innovation, opportunity, diversity, and community.

“I am honored to receive this award, and I am grateful to be recognized for something I absolutely love doing,” said Mayi, who enjoys interacting with her students. “My congratulations to the winners in the other categories and to all the nominees. It is a privilege to be counted among them.”

In addition to her dedication to her students, Mayi has been a valuable asset to NSU and the South Florida community during the COVID-19 pandemic. During the past few months, Mayi has been a go-to expert for many media outlets and has been featured in the Sun Sentinel, on Local 10 News, and in many other publications and news programs.

While the event is traditionally held in true Academy Awards style with photographers, festive receptions, and speeches, this year’s virtual ceremony reminded the NSU community that despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the university would continue to function smoothly.

  • Student of the Year – Regina Zambrano
  • Executive of the Year – Hilda De Gaetano, D.O., M.S.
  • Alumni of the Year – Carisa Champion, D.O.
  • Graduate Organization of the Year – American Medical Women’s Association
  • Corporate Partner of the Year – Werner Kahn Studios
