Eighteen faculty received recognition in April for outstanding scholarship at the annual faculty awards program. Recipients were honored for notable work in their academic fields in the 2008-2009 year, including a wide range of works from presentations on biological diversity, architecture in art, and science and sexual orientation to "VoIP Quality and Security Issues for Consumers and Small Businesses."

Three faculty members were awarded Herber Awards for their work. This award and accompanying grant was established in 2006 to facilitate teachers in their quest to achieve and sustain innovative, quality instruction.

Vola Andrianarijaona, assistant professor of computer science, mathematics, and physics, received a Herber Grant to travel to Oakridge National Laboratory to do research and to attend the International Conference on Photonic, Electronic, and Atomic Collisions. Heather Reid, assistant professor of English, received a grant to spend two weeks at the Huntington Library to research and write an article about the only surviving Middle English translation of the "Story of Asneth." And resident artist Mei Ann Teo will use her grant to attend the La Mama International Symposium for Directors in Umbria, Italy.
