Teaching Awards: Congratulations to this year's recipients of the Part-time Faculty Teaching Awards! A ceremony was held on March 5th where President Garvey and Provost Dominguez honored the following faculty members for their outstanding teaching and mentoring:
- Fr. Frank Donio, S.A.C. (School of Theology and Religious Studies)
- Daniel Zachem, Esq. (Columbus School of Law)
- Dr. Shawqi Talia (Department of Semitic an Egyptian Languages and Literatures, School of Arts and Sciences)
The goal of the program is for faculty and staff at the university to reflect on our views and beliefs, and on how those inform and impact our interactions with each other and our students. Facilitators will focus on helping participants articulate these interests and concerns in a respectful and productive manner. While it is possible that various difficult topics will come up in the circles, the purpose of the circles is not to instruct on these topics but to assist participants in communicating with each other. See the Events page for upcoming dates.
