Faculty Senate



Dr. Linda Ghent (Economics) has been awarded the 2017 Distinguished Faculty Award. Congratulations! Dr. Ghent has served EIU in the Department of Economics for 17 years with excellence in the areas of service, teaching, and research. In addition to Chairing the Economics Department, she has been active on many committees, such as chairing UPC. She won the Clay Service award in ’15, and she has won ACA’s in Teaching and in Balanced. In addition to receiving multiple recognitions for her teaching from both students and her faculty peers over the course of many years, her teaching has been innovative, as reflected in the interesting variety of topics she addresses in her courses and the fact that her teaching reaches students outside of the Economics Department. Her research appears in both traditional peer-reviewed sources for scholars in her field and on digital platforms that reach a wider audience, thus enhancing EIU’s reputation beyond our own campus and local community. These are just a few of the areas in which Dr. Ghent has excelled within the Department of Economics and EIU.
