Two Greenlee School associate professors received professional awards during the summer.
The American Library Association recognized Barbara Mack as the 2005 recipient of the “National Advocacy Honor Roll” award for Iowa. Each year, the ALA selects an individual from each state who has performed exemplary service on behalf of libraries in the state.
Mack is a member of “Lawyers for Libraries,” an advocacy group that supports First Amendment freedoms and high educational standards.
The following report highlights the summer accomplishments of Greenlee faculty, staff and students.
Professor Eric Abbott and his wife, Tatyana, helped organize and translate proceedings for Ural State University, which has a partnership agreement with the Greenlee School. Here is a translation of the citation:
Ural State Forest Engineering University. (2005). Proceedings: International Scientific Technical Conference on Social, Economic, and Ecological Problems of the Forest Complex. Federal Education Agency, Ural State Forest Engineering University, Ekaterinburg, Russia.
Eight of 14 papers submitted by master's students in the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication have been accepted for presentation this summer at a national journalism conference in San Antonio, Texas.
Also, professors in the Greenlee School tallied multiple paper acceptances and one national ethics award to be presented at the Aug. 10-13 meeting of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.
