Steven Mullaney - The Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate

Posted: 1/30/2003
Dear Colleagues,

I'm proud to announce that Steven Mullaney has worked long, hard, and brilliantly to earn the English Department the honor of participating in the "The Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate" (CID), a multi-year research and action project aimed at redefining and improving doctoral education at American universities. Partner departments in English include Columbia, Duke, Indiana, Ohio State, and Pittsburgh; the Initiative is interdisciplinary and has also enrolled departments of Chemistry, Mathematics, and Education and will expand to include History and Psychology. This is an exciting program inviting each department or discipline to create "design experiments" in doctoral education to meet department goals.

I want to thank Steven for taking time in a more-than-busy year to make this application such a success. If we're adventurous in our "design experiments" (while still adhering to our graduate students' complex needs), we can have fun with this project and profit from connections with other first-rate graduate programs in English.

Best, Patsy

The Impact Award

Posted: 1/30/2003
There are very few awards in the Department of English or College of LSA for which Lecturer IIIs are eligible, and yet Lecturer IIIs make substantial contributions-in teaching, administration, service, and scholarly and creative activities-to both Department and College.

The Impact Award is awarded annually to one Lecturer III who the Executive Committee of the Department determines has had a substantial impact on the Department, whether in teaching, administration, service, or scholarly or creative activities.

This year the honor will be awarded to John Rubadeau.
