St. John Fisher College Presents Awards to Four Faculty Members
At the President’s Award Ceremony and Commencement last weekend, St. John Fisher College presented awards to four faculty members in recognition of outstanding teaching, advising, and scholarly work.
The Trustees’ Award for Distinguished Scholarly Achievement is the highest honor that the Board of Trustees can bestow on a faculty member, second only to an honorary degree. The award is given to no more than one full-time faculty member each year in recognition of outstanding scholarly work, ranging from writing books and articles, to presenting papers at professional conferences. The 2010 recipient of the Trustees’ Award for Distinguished Scholarly Achievement was Dr. Seyda Deligonul, Professor of Management.
The Full-Time Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence is given annually to a full-time faculty member at Fisher for outstanding work in the classroom. Recipients of this award must demonstrate thorough knowledge of their subject matter; solid preparation for class; clear and effective communication; and genuine enthusiasm for their job. This year’s recipient was Dr. Edward Freeman, Assistant Professor of Biology.
The Academic Advisor Award recognizes a faculty member whose academic advising services are considered to be exemplary by students and peers. The award recipient represents the best in academic advising practices through his or her availability to students; familiarity with academic programs and requirements; and an active interest in assisting students to explore academic opportunities and to get the most out of their Fisher education. All full- and part-time faculty members at Fisher who serve as academic advisors are eligible for the award. The 2009-2010 recipient was Seungwon Jeon, Assistant Professor of Management.
The Father Dorsey Award is given to a teaching member of the College who is dedicated to the student life experience both in and out of the classroom. The faculty member’s commitment is shown in his/her day-to-day interactions with students. The recipient is both supporting and challenging to students in order for them to become the best they can be as individuals, as students, and as members of the larger community. This year’s Father Dorsey Award was given to Father William E. Graf, Assistant Professor and Chair of the Religious Studies Department.
