In announcing the award, UMass-Boston also cited Sullivan’s willingness to mentor other students, and networking with program alumni and future degree candidates, as part of the reason for his selection.
“Through it all, (Sullivan) has shown himself to be reliable, thoughtful, and interested in exploring innovative tools and techniques for learning, while inviting others along for the adventure. Michael represents the best of our program – a learner, a teacher, and a favored colleague,” according the UMass-Boston program book.
In addition, Sullivan was in Boston the week before receiving his Master of Education degree to address the Graduate Instructional Design Association.
As director of MercerOnline, Sullivan oversees more than 375 online sections, supporting 8,000 students and more than 125 faculty and adjuncts.
