2023 Faculty Excellence Awards Presented

Moncton – On Friday, deserving Crandall faculty members were presented with awards for excellence in the areas of teaching, service, and research.

The Stephen and Ella Steeves Awards

The Stephen and Ella Steeves Awards are held annually to celebrate the contributions of faculty members to their fields, to their students, to their communities, and ultimately to the University’s mission of Transforming lives through quality university education firmly rooted in the Christian faith.

Each year, students, staff and fellow faculty members submit nominations, and recipients are selected by the Faculty Development Committee for each of the award categories, with additional aid provided by a third party committee of scholars in the case of the award for research.

For 2023, the award for teaching was presented to Dr. Abram Steen; the award for research was presented to Dr. Dieu Hack-Polay; and, the award for service was presented to Graeme Ching.

“We have excellent faculty here at Crandall,” said Dr. Jon Ohlhauser, Provost and Vice-President for Academic Affairs. “It’s often challenging to choose a winner from among the many worthy nominees, and this year was no exception.”

Professor Emeritus

In addition to the awards, a fifth individual was present to receive recognition for his accomplishments. Dr. Stephen Dempster was named Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies following his retirement in the Spring of 2021, but the formal presentation of his new rank was delayed due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It was because of Dr. Dempster’s introductory class in Old Testament that I decided to stay the full four years and complete my degree at Atlantic Baptist College [now Crandall University],” said Dr. Bruce Fawcett, President and Vice-Chancellor. “It gives me great pleasure, on behalf of the University Senate, to recognize his contributions to the University and present him with an official certificate recognizing his elevation to the rank of Professor Emeritus.”

Crandall University is Atlantic Canada’s leading Liberal Arts University rooted in the Christian Faith, offering degree programs in Arts, Science, Business Administration, Education, and Management. To learn more, visit crandallu.ca or call 1‑888-968-6228.
