Christopher Yakacki, assistant professor, has been named the 2015 campus winner for the Faculty Excellence in Research and Creative Activities award. He will be honored at a ceremony on September 18. The awards are special not just because they recognize outstanding performance in our core areas as a university, but also because they are ultimately recognition of this exemplary work by faculty peers. Recipients are chosen by selection committees comprising previous award winners. Congratulations, Chris! Read the entire announcement from Provost Nairn.
