Five Barney School of Business faculty members recently were honored with the 2014 Faculty Awards.
Faculty Excellence Awards for teaching, professional development, and service are determined by peer review. Prior award winners in each category review their peers and nominate winners. For 2014, the following three faculty were nominated and received Faculty Excellence Awards:
Faculty Excellence Award—Professional Development: Dr. Ke Yang, Assistant Professor of Economics
Faculty Excellence Award—Service: Dr. Ann Costello, Associate Professor of Insurance
Two new awards were established in 2014: a High Impact Faculty award and an Outstanding Advisor award. These awards are determined based on input from Barney School of Business students. In a student-led initiative, survey data was used to nominate winners in each category. For 2014, the following two faculty were nominated and received awards:
High Impact Faculty: James Peta, Lecturer in Economics and MBA Program Director
Outstanding Advisor: Dr. Jerry Katrichis, Associate Professor of Marketing and Department Chair
“We are exceptionally fortunate to have so many outstanding faculty,” said Barney Dean Marty Roth. “Their commitment to student learning and development, to the creation of new knowledge in their fields, and to the sustained success of the institution is unparalleled. The innovation, motivation and creativity they bring to their work is evident in their teaching accomplishments, research achievements, and in their service to the School and University.
"These award selections were difficult based on the many accomplishments across the Barney faculty," Roth said. "The award winners’ efforts are applauded by their colleagues, and serve to reinforce our culture of excellence.”
