Three IU Northwest faculty receive prestigious IU awards

Three IU Northwest faculty members are being recognized on April 10 for prestigious awards bestowed by Indiana University.

The honorees will receive their awards at the upcoming Celebration of Distinguished Teaching Award ceremony in Bloomington.

Among the honorees, are:

Dorothy Ige Campbell, Professor of Communication, who will be honored as the recipient of the Indiana University George Pinnell Service Award. This award honors faculty members who are considered to be shining examples of dedication and excellence in service to others. The award was established in 1988 and recognizes faculty members and librarians who have shown exceptional breadth of involvement and depth of commitment in service to the university, to their profession, or to the public.

Zoran Kilibarda, Associate Professor and Department Chair for the Department of Geosciences, who will be honored for receiving the prestigious President’s Award, one of the most prestigious teaching awards bestowed by Indiana University.
