The Committee on Teaching and Scholarship (TAS) has determined the award recipients of the 2012-2013 Butine Faculty Development Fund spring cycle, according to committee chair Aziz Inan, engineering. Due to the large number of proposals received and the limited amount of funds available, the committee was unable to fund all qualified proposals. In addition to considering the goals and the quality of each proposal received, the TAS committee had to use other factors in their decisions, including the applicant’s academic rank, frequency of Butine awards received, and distribution of funds among different schools and disciplines. This spring’s Butine Award recipients are:
- Genevieve Brassard, English: 15th Annual Space Between and Modernist Studies Association (MSA) Conferences, $1,100
- Hannah Callender, math: Annual Meeting of the Society for Mathematical Biology, $1,291
