Announcing a New Publication: Faculty Achievements 2005-2007

Monday, November 26, 2007 (Around 6 years ago)

As a way to continue to promote and celebrate the good professional scholarly, research, and creative work of the faculty, The John S. Kendall Center for Engaged Learning is launching a new publication, Faculty Achievements.

Faculty Achievements will be published annually and will span achievements according to calendar years. The Kendall Center will provide the administrative guidance for the publication, College Relations will provide the creative and design work, and faculty will provide the information about their achievements.

Here’s how this will work for the first Faculty Achievements:

  1. This first publication will span faculty achievements from January 1, 2005 through December 31, 2007. Only work that has appeared or been awarded during this time should be submitted.

  2. Achievements should be submitted in the body of an email to Cathy Blaukat (cblaukat). Please put “faculty achievements” in the subject line.

  3. Submit achievements in the following order: Name, Department Publications (book, journal articles, book chapters, book review, creative work) Performances or Exhibitions (published, produced, performed international,
    national, local) Presentations (talks, invited talks, posters) Grants (external and internal) Awards in Discipline Elected or Appointed Work in National Disciplinary Organizations

  4. Please submit your achievements by February 14, 2008.

  5. Please use our modified citation format for all achievements.

Models: We’ve provided examples of publications, presentations, exhibitions, performances, awards in a discipline, and elected or appointed work. Please organize your information into this format. If you have an achievement that is not covered by these examples, please send us the relevant information so that we can organize it appropriately.

If your co-author/s or co-presenter/s is/are Gustavus student/s, please indicate by putting the last two digits of the year of graduation after the name: Adolphson ‘10.

If you are a Gustavus graduate, please put the last two digits of your year of graduation after your name.
