The Division of Research (DOR) will host its third annual Principal Investigator Appreciation and Researcher of the Year Awards Luncheon on Friday, April 20, in the Foster-Tanner Band Rehearsal Hall at 11:30 a.m. FAMU President James H. Ammons will be the keynote speaker.
During the event, themed “The Recognition of Research Excellence with Caring,” President Ammons will honor five principal investigators for their respective research accomplishments.
“This occasion gives us an opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to all investigators and give a reward to a few selected ones…so they may receive public recognition for their outstanding research accomplishments, hard work and sustained efforts,” said K. Ken Redda Ph.D., professor and acting vice president for research.
The event continues the Institutional Researcher Awards sanctioned by the FAMU Faculty Senate in 2010. Since then, 14 faculty members have been recognized. A multidisciplinary committee has selected the awardees from a nomination pool of 11 to represent three categories: Distinguished Researcher Award, Research Excellence Award, and Emerging Researcher Award.
Evaluations of the nominees’ packets were conducted and finalists were interviewed this semester. Recommendations of research award recipients were submitted to the Office of the Faculty Senate.
