Kudos to Larry Neuman, professor of sociology, criminology and anthropology, who received a Strategic Initiatives grant titled “Building Program Capacity in Public Health.” The grant, for more than $28,000, develops faculty expertise using materials and research developed through Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities, or SENCER, to design curricular projects that connect science learning to real-world problems.
Kudos to Catherine Chan, associate professor of biological sciences and chemistry, who is the recipient of the 2015 College of Letters and Sciences Excellence in Service Award. The selection committee noted Chan's committment to developing research opportunities for students and faculty and engaging in curricular reform to foster retention and success in STEM fields, as well as in other disciplines.
Kudos to Robin Fox, who will be the next associate dean of the College of Education and Professional Studies. Fox, an associate professor of curriculum and instruction, will begin her new duties on July 1 and remains in her interim role until then.
Kudos to Teresa Faris, associate professor of art and design, whose work will appear in "The Jeweler’s Journey: From the Bench to the Body and Beyond," April 11 - May 17, at Peters Valley’s Sally D. Francisco Gallery in Layton, N.J. The curators selected a small group of distinguished artists to showcase metalwork that transcends jewelry.
