Each January, the School of Human Environmental Sciences begins the spring semester by recognizing scholarly accomplishments from the previous year.  Faculty and staff who receive extramural funding are congratulated, along with the individuals who work to implement the various funded projects.  The 2010 list included 22 projects totaling $5.5 million.  The honors also include those who have scholarly work published through refereed journal articles, books, peer-reviewed chapters, Extension numbered-series publications, and refereed abstracts.  Faculty who mentored graduate students through the completion of their thesis or dissertation as chair of their committee were also recognized.

"Beginning the spring semester by celebrating our successes with scholarly publications and grants provides an opportunity to summarize the previous year's accomplishments while laying the foundations for the year ahead," shared Dr. Ann Vail, Director of the School of Human Environmental Sciences.
