Recognizing our outstanding faculty

Carleton is home to many outstanding teachers and researchers, whose reputation for excellence spans well beyond the campus borders. As such, each year, we make special recognition of a select few who have made a significant impact in their field of study and the lives of their students by honouring them with a Carleton Teaching or Research Achievement Award. This year’s recipients are listed in this issue of Carleton NOW.

In viewing this list, no doubt you will share my belief that we do have so many excellent faculty members of which we can be infinitely proud. In addition to those that we’ve recognized internally, you will also see a number of our faculty who have gained considerable attention from the external community, including the group of finalists for this year’s Capital Educators’ Awards. The winners will be announced at the annual “Edugala,” to be held at Algonquin College on May 11. I encourage you to purchase a ticket and join us in celebrating these individuals. Ticket information can be found at www.edugala.ca

This brings me to my next point. While internal recognition of our faculty is of extreme importance, external honours also bring with them additional advantages. For example, there is perhaps no higher flattery than being acknowledged by one’s own professional peer group. There is certainly no shortage of examples of individuals at Carleton who have obtained such honours. These accomplishments too, deserve to be celebrated. In addition, we should support our fellow faculty members in their pursuit of such external awards, as the worthy candidates for them are plentiful across campus. For this reason, we have struck a committee, the primary task being to identify major external awards and unique research opportunities that might be of interest to Carleton faculty, and to assist researchers in compiling compelling applications for these competitions.

As the academic year comes to a close, it’s a fitting time to celebrate the successes of the year, but at the same time, it’s an opportunity to look forward and maintain our momentum as we constantly strive for newer and greater things.
