Boulder Faculty Assembly announces annual awards

By Staff

The Boulder Faculty Assembly (BFA) recently recognized the recipients of the 2012-2013 Faculty Excellence Awards. Each spring, the BFA presents up to 12 members of the Boulder Faculty Senate with awards for faculty excellence, recognizing their outstanding work. The organization accepts nominees in three categories: excellence in the areas of teaching; service; and research, scholarly and creative work.

These awards are especially notable because Boulder campus colleagues make the nominations, as well as the selections of award recipients. The 2012-2013 Excellence Awardees are:

Service: John Cumalat, physics; Janet deGrazia, chemical and biological engineering; Hillary Potter, sociology; and Eric Stade, math and Libby Residential Program.

Teaching: Christine Hrenya, chemical and biological engineering; Daphne Leong, music; Dragan Maksimovic, electrical, computer, and energy engineering; and Greg Tucker, geological sciences.

Research, Scholarly and Creative work: Carol Cleland, philosophy; Noah Fierer, ecology and evolutionary biology; Kristine Larson, aerospace engineering; and Karl Linden, civil, environmental, and architectural engineering.
