The following DePaul faculty members were recently recognized for their professional accomplishments by outside organizations:
Blair Davis, an associate professor in the College of Communication, won the 2023 Peter C. Rollins Book Award, honoring the best book of the year, from the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association for "Comic Book Women," co-authored with CMN alumna Peyton Brunet.
Anne Kowalczyk, a clinical assistant professor in the School of Nursing in the College of Science and Health, was awarded a $10,000 Illinois Board of Higher Education Nurse Educator Fellowship award for 2023. Only 40 individuals across Illinois were selected for this fellowship. The higher ed board created the program to help increase the number of registered professional nurses with high-quality postsecondary credentials, addressing the demands of the Illinois economy.
Sherry Rasmussen, an instructor in DePaul’s English Language Academy, was invited to the Asian University for Women in Chittagong, Bangladesh, to help develop a teacher-training program. AUW was established to educate and offer leadership skills to women from traditional cultures who might otherwise be denied access to a college education. She arrived in Bangladesh in January and will return to the United States at the end of May.
