The Writing Center (in Franz 120, the Learning Resource Center) is available to your summer students as a resource for their writing assignments. In contrast with regular semesters, where students make appointments via an online schedule, summer appointments are made via email on an as-needed basis. Writing@up.edu is the general e-mail through which students can arrange an appointment with any of four writing assistants this term (Megan Lester, Sara McCrohan, Erin Savoia, Andrea Turel). See the Writing Center website at www.up.edu/lrc/writing/ for information about writing resources, and for questions contact Lars Erik Larson, English, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

All faculty and staff who wanted to attend the recent afternoon Teaching and Scholarship presentation by Lars Erik Larson but had previous commitments can see his talk, “Dialectical Teaching in a Righteous Age,” as a 22-minute podcast at this link: http://tinyurl.com/o57qdd4. Larsen’s talk is featured on the new Garaventa Center series Solloquia Tempestiva, the center’ first podcast from their mobile studio. All are invited to see a great sample of the caliber of teaching we have here at UP, and sending it viral wouldn’t hurt either.
The University’s 2013 Faculty Awards were presented on Tuesday, May 7, at the Faculty Awards Dinner, with the following results:
The James Culligan Award, established in 1953 in memory of a dedicated servant of the University and presented annually to a faculty member in recognition of distinguished service, was presented to John Orr, English, who also serves as assistant to the provost, and director of honors and fellowships and grants. Winners of the Culligan Award wear the medal with their academic regalia, as a sign of the University’s highest faculty honor.
The Deans’ Award for Faculty Leadership, presented annually to a tenured faculty member who exemplifies, in an extraordinary way, the qualities of teaching and scholarship described in the University’s Articles of Administration for appointment, advancement in rank, and tenure, was presented to the effervescent, exuberant, and ebullient Kate Regan, Spanish professor extraordinaire with the international languages and cultures department.
The Outstanding Teaching Award, presented annually by the University’s Committee on Teaching and Scholarship to a faculty member who is a particular exemplar of the University’s commitment to superb teaching, was presented to Lars Erik Larson of the English department.
The Outstanding Scholarship Award, presented annually by the University’s Committee on Teaching and Scholarship to a faculty member who presents unusually significant and meritorious achievement in professional scholarship during the past two academic years, and whose work substantively enhances the effectiveness of his or her classroom teaching, was presented to the incomparable team of Steve Kolmes, biology and environmental science, and Russell Butkus, theology.
