2017 President’s Award Honoree

 

The 2017 recipient of The President’s Award for Excellence in Academic Integration is Andrew Nyblade, Professor of Geosciences in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences.

Nyblade’s efforts through AfricaArray, an initiative he co-founded in 2005, has led to significant gains in opportunities to improve diversity in the geosciences field, which is the least diverse of all the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

The President’s Award, established in 1996, is given to a full-time member of the University faculty who has exhibited extraordinary achievement in the integration of teaching, research or creative accomplishments, and service. Award recipients typically have a strong outreach component to their scholarly endeavors, including connections to communities not typically reached through their everyday work.
