Drs. Livengood and Astle Receive Academic Affairs Award

Duquesne University Times

About 80 faculty, staff and administrators attended the annual assessment brunch on Jan. 23 in appreciation of their contributions to assessment at the University. Awards for $1,000 were presented in three categories: academic affairs, student life and interdivisional.

The winners were:

Academic Affairs
Dr. Bruce Livengood, associate professor of clinical, social and administrative sciences in the Mylan School of Pharmacy, and Dr. Janet Astle, director of experimental education for the pharmacy school, for PharmEd Plus: A Competency-Based Curricular Assessment Web-Based Program. They used assessment results to make targeted changes in the Pharm.D. curriculum for program improvement and as a tool for mentoring and advising individual students.

The award applications were reviewed by a committee chaired by Dr. Laurel Willingham McLain, director of the Center for Teaching Excellence, with members Rebecca Mickler, director of Greek Life; Susan Monahan, director of student conduct; and Dr. Susan Munson, associate dean in the School of Education.
