Scholarship, creativity, innovation, and the many forms of collaborative engagement that shape faculty life and student learning are central to the mission of Eastern Illinois University. For that reason, our faculty, department chairs, college deans, the Provost, and the entire campus community celebrate the achievements and outstanding contributions of our colleagues and students to their disciplines and professions every year. And, as the following pages illustrate, faculty engaged in continuing scholarly and creative activities that have provided outstanding mentoring experiences for our undergraduate and graduate students.

In addition to recognizing faculty performances, shows, publications, grants and other professional efforts, the University will recognize the recipients of the Edwin L. “Bud” May award and Dean’s Award for Excellence in Summer Research & Creative Activity, Cynthia W. Rich and Anna L. Cromwell, respectively. We congratulate Drs. Rich and Cromwell, as well as each and every member of EIU’s community who has contributed to our shared mission and sustained commitment to academic excellence.
