Moncton – On Friday, deserving Crandall faculty members were presented with awards for excellence in the areas of teaching, research, and service.
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.
With this year’s award presentation taking place in the midst of Crandall’s 75th anniversary celebrations, Dr. Jon Ohlhauser, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, noted, “While not in the 75th year of celebrating the award, the spirit behind these awards has been alive and well at this institution for the past 75 years of history.”
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 the 2023-2024 academic year, the award for excellence in teaching was presented to Dr. Cathlene Hillier; the award for excellence in research was presented to Dr. Isaac Soon; and, awards for excellence in service were presented to Dr. Keith Grant and Mr. Don Moore.
“We are proud to honour the exceptional work of our faculty members through the presentation of these awards,” said Dr. Bruce Fawcett, President and Vice Chancellor, “and we are especially thankful for the support of the Steeves family, whose legacy of generosity continues to have a significant impact on this institution.”
