Temple honors faculty for service contributions
Eighteen Temple faculty members were honored by the Office of the Provost and Faculty Senate Steering Committee for their many service contributions to the university during the second annual Outstanding Faculty Service Awards brunch held on Nov. 8.
Awards were presented to one faculty member from each of Temple’s schools and colleges, including the newly established Division of Theater, Film and Media Arts. Honorees were presented with a certificate recognizing their outstanding service efforts.
Despite last-minute rescheduling due to Hurricane Sandy, the event was attended by more than 60 people, including President Richard M. Englert, Provost Hai-Lung Dai, several deans, chairs, faculty senate steering committee members and several 2011 award recipients.
“This distinguished group of faculty members has made tremendous contributions to their departments, schools and colleges and the university,” said Dai. “Their work strengthens Temple as a vibrant institution of higher learning."
