Tera Dornfeld, a first-year Ph.D. student in the department of Planning, Policy, and Design and one of the newest CUSA researchers of the 2013-2014 school year, has been selected to receive the annual Graduate Dean’s Award for Community Engagement for the School of Social Ecology. Altogether, there were six recipients for the Dean’s Award at the graduate level, each with a $1500 prize! Dornfeld was nominated by her mentor and CUSA Director, Dr. Richard Matthew.
In response to this year’s award, Dean Valerie Jenness stated:
“The applications get stronger each year and the letters of support are impressive and heartfelt. I want to congratulate all of the students who were nominated because, as a group, they represent the spirit that embodies the School of Social Ecology… It’s also important to mention that the funds for these awards come from the Annual Fund Drive that target our alumni, and this campaign has increased 25% each year for the past three years!”
