Emory Accolades

Editor’s note: At a university like Emory, whose faculty and staff seem to garner honors and accolades each time the new Cox Hall bell tower sounds, it can be a daunting task to attempt to document these distinctions. There is a fear that the limits of page space will not permit a full and fair accounting. However, Emory Report will take that chance. In this regular column, ER will highlight the various kudos, small and large, internal and external, brought home by both University faculty and staff.

Patti Owen-Smith, associate professor of psychology and women’s studies at Oxford, has completed the first phase of her research as a Carnegie Scholar during the Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

Owen-Smith plans to use various student narratives and papers to explore how, when and where insight occurs. She is one of 40 members of the third class of Carnegie Scholars selected to participate in the program.

Stephen Nowicki, Candler Professor of Psychology, has been awarded a Leverhulme Trust Linked Research Award from the Leverhulme Foundation for the calendar year 2001. Nowicki will visit the University of Bristol in England for three months to work in child health.

If you have an award or honor for submission, send e-mail to Emory Report reserves the right to determine which items will appear and the schedule for their appearance, as well as whether they will be accompanied by a photograph.
