Program recognizes faculty achievements
The Office of the President and the Office of the Chancellor and Provost will recognize outstanding work by University faculty at Celebrating Faculty Research, Creativity, and Publications, on October 15.
The program, which is also supported by AAUP, the University Libraries, and the UConn Co-op, begins with a presentation by Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Rhodes at 3:30 p.m. at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center's Konover Auditorium. Rhodes is the author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb and Deadly Feasts, and other works.
After Rhodes' remarks, there will be a reception at the William Benton Museum of Art. Publications and other scholarly creative works by current faculty, emeriti, and staff will be on display, as well as the faculty art exhibition.
"This has gone beyond just honoring books published by faculty, which had been the emphasis in the past," says Suzanne Staubach, manager of the Co-op's general books division and one of the event's organizers. "We are recognizing scholarly achievement and creativity on a variety of levels."
Staubach adds that this year's exhibition will include everything from monographs and journal articles to books, artwork and other scholarly creative efforts.
The event is open to the University community. For more information call (860) 486-1001.
