Marc Moulton receives Faculty Award for Excellence in Research/Creative Scholarly Activity
Fall Convocation 2012
University President Brooks Keel, Ph.D. welcomed nearly 900 faculty and staff for Fall Convocation, held at the Performing Arts Center. The theme for the annual event was “Engaging Our Future Together,” and Keel recognized the teaching and research activity of the University’s outstanding faculty members. He also highlighted the University’s numerous achievements during the past year and then focused on Georgia Southern’s expanding role in Georgia.
“Convocation and commencement are the two greatest events at any university,” said Keel. “This past year has been full of outstanding accomplishments and the year ahead is not without challenges. Georgia Southern is growing and changing for the better and I am excited about our future.”
During the ceremony, Keel, along with Jean Bartels, Ph.D., provost and vice president for Academic Affairs presented the 2012-2013 Faculty Awards for Excellence. Established in 1985, the awards recognize excellence in service, contributions to instruction and research and creative scholarly activity. Since the awards began 26 years ago, only 162 have been presented. In 1988, Georgia Southern Professor Emeritus, Sculpture Pat Steadman was commissioned to create a special medallion that is presented to each award winner.
