CDL Awards in Grants and Academic Support

Posted by tom mackey on 22nd October 2010

CDL has been on a roll lately with two high profile awards, one is a grant award with an international dimension and the other is a national award in academic support. First, our Interim Associate Dean Betty Lawrence and college wide Vice Provost for Global and Online Learning Meg Benke led the way for a successful HP Catalyst Initiative grant for $150,000. This grant will allow the college to partner with St. Petersburg State Polytechnical University, located in St. Petersburg, Russia, focusing on research about best practices in online education for STEM students specifically. This past week we learned that Craig Lamb and Terry Vamvalis, our Academic Support team, were recognized with a national Innovation Award in Online Student Services sponsored by the Center for Transforming Student Services (CENTSS). This award specifically recognizes the great work our Academic support team has been doing with the Peer Tutor Program originally developed by Craig Lamb, our Director of Academic Support.
