Faculty Achievement Award
This week it was announced that I received the Faculty Achievement Award at UDM. This is an award given to junior faculty who have demonstrated some distinction and promise in their work. It is part of the Faculty Excellence Awards. I was really happy and honored to receive this. The actual ceremony will be in early November. UDM hosts a very nice dinner, and I get a few minutes to make a speech. It should be fun. It is a bit awkward to be congratulated by people, even though I like it. I put in my tenure application this Fall, so this is a good time for the award.
