KEVIN AYOTTE, Department of Communication
Recipient 2014-2015, Faculty Service

“Collegiality and Shared Governance”

Realizing "shared governance" as an actual practice rather than merely an abstract ideal depends fundamentally upon the mutual interest by faculty and administrators in working together. Collegiality also, therefore, must be a practice actually lived by faculty and administrators. This thing called "faculty service" must include responsibility for promoting shared governance by actively cultivating collegiality.

, Women’s Studies Program
Recipient 2014-2015, Faculty Service

“Feminist Dissent: Social Movement Politics in the Bureaucratic University”
This lecture examines dilemmas faced by faculty who are trying to transform the silent economy of gendered academic service into visible activist work that is engaged with feminist social movement politics. Dr. Forbes draws on her role as a CFA faculty rights representative, her experience in the Women’s Studies Program, socio-legal studies, and the scholarship of feminist activism to consider how faculty might integrate the realities of their daily working lives into their scholarship to resolve, at least partially, some of these dilemmas.

KENNETH D. FROELICH, Department of Music
Recipient 2014-2015, Distinguished Achievement in Research, Scholarship or Creative Accomplishment

“Making Noise: Cultural Relevance in New Classical Music”
Classical music is often perceived as disconnected from modern society – a relic of another time. In his presentation, Dr. Froelich will present samples of his own compositions, and through these works discuss how new classical music is building bridges between our contemporary American culture and concert halls across the nation.

ERIC PERSON, Department of Chemistry
Recipient 2014-2015, Innovation

“From Problem Based Learning to a Problem Based Course: Just in Time Teaching”
It is staggering what students can learn and how quickly they can acquire new knowledge, skills, and abilities when they feel a compelling need. Dr. Person will discuss how his experience mentoring grade-school robotics teams and a close relationship with a local environmental analysis laboratory has led to the re imagination of a senior level analytical chemistry course to an industry based, problem focused course that provides students with real-world job experience.
