Dr. Bud Bence awarded Hinds Fellowship
Both the university-wide Scholarship Council and the CAS Faculty Development Committee voted unanimously to award Dr. Bud Bence a Hinds Fellowship for the 2008-2009 academic year. This honor reflects both appreciation for the time of his service to the faculty, and it offers important assistance for his research project.
Dr. Bence was commissioned through the TEV Lilly project to write a book on vocation—and this was before he agreed to assist with the VPAA and Dean duties. This award, named after our esteemed Dr. Marvin Hinds, allows for a course-load reduction each semester plus $3,000 to assist with research needs. It is a high honor to receive this award, and in this case a double vote of confidence.
Congratulations to Dr. Bence!
