Recipients of the college's 2014 faculty excellence awards are (from left) Karl Booksh and Melissa Ianetta (both for service), Christopher Penna (advising), Tobin Driscoll (scholarship) and Christine Cucciarre (teaching), with Dean George Watson.

College faculty awards

The college honored five faculty members with awards for excellence in advising, scholarship, teaching and service. 

Christopher Penna, associate professor of English, received the colleges Outstanding Advising Award for his dedicated work in advising students and in using that experience to enrich their educational opportunities and to press for more innovative and effective approaches to teaching. He is that most valuable of advisers, Watson said, the person who knows how the system works and the person who knows exactly what to do when the system doesnt work.

Tobin Driscoll, professor of mathematical sciences, received the Outstanding Scholar Award for his fundamental contributions in numerical analysis, scientific computing and software development, and applied mathematics. His widely published scholarly work has received more than 3,000 citations and has been consistently funded by the National Science Foundation. Letters supporting Driscolls award nomination called him one of the most outstanding numerical analysts of his generation.

Christine Cucciarre, assistant professor of English, was presented the colleges Outstanding Teaching Award for work that was described as passionate and distinguished at every level in classroom teaching, mentoring, advising, teaching across campus and service to the profession in the teaching of writing. Cucciarres classroom teaching consistently receives the highest ratings from student evaluations.

The high level of faculty service across the college made choosing one recipient for the Excellence in Service Award difficult, so this year, we settled on two, Watson said.

Karl Booksh, professor of chemistry, was recognized for his service as a tireless and committed advocate for students from diverse populations [who] works diligently to help minority students and those with disabilities find their way in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. Booksh is a leader in the national scientific community on the subjects of disability and diversity in chemistry and helped produce a handbook, Teaching Chemistry to Students with Disabilities.

Melissa Ianetta, associate professor of English and director of writing in the University Writing Center, also received the colleges Excellence in Service award, recognizing work that has truly been exemplary, both on campus and in the larger professional community. As director of writing for the past nine years, Ianetta has provided leadership both in required writing courses and in numerous student- and faculty-focused writing initiatives throughout the campus.

University awards

Also at the Celebrating Achievement and Success event, Watson recognized faculty members and students who previously received University awards.

Those included three faculty members who were presented Excellence in Teaching awards at this months Faculty Senate meeting: Dana S. Chatellier, education specialist and instructor in chemistry and biochemistry; Iris Busch, assistant professor of German in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures; and Dannagal Goldthwaite Young, assistant professor of communication.

In addition to the Universitys faculty awards for teaching, two graduate students received Excellence in Graduate Student Teaching awards for their work as teaching assistants: Nadezda Anatolyevna Stepicheva, doctoral student in biological sciences; and Yiben Wang, doctoral student in chemistry and biochemistry.

Watson also recognized the graduating seniors, both with majors in the College of Arts and Sciences, who previously received awards from the UD Alumni Association as the outstanding man and woman in the Class of 2014. Ryan Leonard received this years Alexander J. Taylor Sr. Award, and Brielle Gerry received the Emalea Pusey Warner award.

Other accomplishments the college marked this academic year were recognized in a slide show that was featured at the celebration.

The presentations were followed by a reception, which included a performance by UDs award-winning student a cappella group Vocal Point.
