Provost's Awards Lecture Series
This series is intended to honor and showcase each year's recipients of the Provost's Awards.
Our lecturer for March 2014 is Dr. Henry Delcore, the recipient of the Faculty Service Award. This award honors outstanding service to the university community and the community-at-large. Service activities might include a pattern of exemplary contributions to one’s discipline, faculty governance, service learning, community activities, and other similar achievements.
Henry Delcore, Professor of Anthropology, joined the Fresno State faculty in 2000. He has been instrumental in leading the El Dorado Park Community Development Corporation, tasked with supporting the revitalization of one of the most distressed neighborhoods in the City of Fresno, and he has been the president of the board since its incorporation. On campus, he has been involved in the International Task Force, using his skills as a qualitative researcher to provide data and evidence about international student experiences on campus. He is also currently conducting a campus-based ethnography that will inform Fresno State Administrative leadership about how students use technology at Fresno State. He is co-author of The Library Study, a design anthropology report for Administrative leadership on how Fresno State’s Henry Madden Library might better adapt its services to student practices while still accomplishing the educational mission of an academic library. Finally, he has integrated fieldwork training for cultural anthropology students with numerous local organizations, helping students learn by using ethnography to solve real world problems.
