Research & Scholarly Activity Awards

Research & Scholarly Activity Awards

Research & Scholarly Activity Awards is a bi-annual program to recognize, reward, and celebrate campus community achievements in research, scholarly and creative activities.  Applications are peer-reviewed by members of the Faculty Development Committee and ranked as A-Level, B-Level or C-Level based on degree of quality, degree of effort, timeliness of effort, and importance to the mission of Life University.

The OSRSA received 52 applications during the Spring quarter.  Following peer-review, we announced awards to 23 faculty and staff at the Summer 2018 FSDP.  The awardees, along with the titles of their projects and place of publication or presentation, are listed below.
