Dr. Brian Johnson, professor of criminal justice, receives the Outstanding University Service Award from President Philomena V. Mantella.
Faculty members were honored February 11 for their research, teaching, service years and scholarship at the awards convocation held at the DeVos Center.
Maria Cimitile, provost and executive vice president for Academic and Student Affairs, welcomed the audience and said she considered Grand Valley faculty as creators.
"I thought about our milestone honorees who have been here for the duration of their careers as well as our honorees who have recently joined us and are making a significant impact on the university," Cimitile said. "All of us are creators, changing Grand Valley over time. Some call change over time evolution but I like to think of it simply as life."
Feryal Alayont, professor of mathematics, gave the convocation address and also received the Outstanding Advising and Student Services Award.
In addition to other University Awards for Excellence, the Pew Faculty Teaching and Learning Center and Center for Scholarly and Creative Excellence presented awards. A list of all award recipients is online at gvsu.edu/provost.
