The College of Science is pleased to announce that Dr. Dana Hawley of the Department of Biological Sciences has been selected to receive the 2015 College of Science Outreach Excellence Award. She was chosen by the COS Honorifics Committee based upon her impressive nomination application and letters of recommendation.
Dr. Hawley’s work involves the incorporation of outreach as an active part into her upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses. Her classes in Ornithology are active-learning environments, whereby her students may work at the Price House Nature Center or in local K-12 classrooms with teaching units and activities related to birds.
A recommendation by Dr. Ann Stevens and Dr. Brenda Winkel, states “Dana’s outreach activities have had a profound and lasting effect, not only on the individuals she teaches and mentors, but also on the broader public community served by those students”.
