The recognition of authors at ESU is an important part of our culture and of celebrating scholarship.
Authors are included in the annual publication Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity, which is celebrated at an annual luncheon in winter. This gives our community a chance to salute the hard work and dedication of a diverse group of authors from various departments and colleges across our university.
Co-chaired by representatives from Kemp Library and the OSPR, the ESU Campus Author Recognition Committee, a Provost-appointed committee, consists of faculty and staff representatives from across the colleges and programs. The committee members for the 2019-2020 academic year are: Renee Boburka (Psychology), Donald Cummings (Exercise Science), Heather Garrison (Special Education), Mark Gatesman (Kemp Library), Jennifer Harrison (English), Tonderlera Ohaeri (Graduate and Extended Studies), Ahmed Yousof (Digital Media Technologies).
The committee is chaired by two non-voting members/co-chairs, Christina McDonald of the Office of Sponsored Projects and Research and Megan Smith, from Kemp Library.
