Benedictine University President and Acting Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs William J. Carroll, Ph.D. recently announced the recipients of its 2008 Benedictine University Faculty Awards.
These awards recognize significant achievements in the areas of teaching, research and service which serve as models for all faculty members. Faculty members were nominated by members of the Benedictine University community (faculty, staff, administration and students) in February 2008.
The academic deans and the associate provost recommended the award winners, and these recommendations were accepted by the acting provost. Each nomination included three letters attesting to the exemplary teaching, research or service of the nominees.
Tim Comar, Ph.D, associate professor of Mathematics, was named the recipient of the Faculty Award for Research. Isobel Lobo, Ph.D, associate professor of International Business and Economics, and Cheryl Mascarenhas, Ph.D, assistant professor of Chemistry, received the Faculty Award for Teaching.
