Duquesne University Honors Moskal with Mind, Heart and Spirit Award
Dr. Barbara M. Moskal of Evergreen, Colo., received a 2010 Duquesne University Mind, Heart and Spirit Award.
Mind, Heart and Spirit Awards recognize Duquesne alumni who exemplify the pillars of the University’s mission—academic excellence; moral and spiritual values; ecumenism and diversity; service; and world concerns.
Moskal, who received her bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Duquesne in 1989, was honored in the category of academic excellence.
A professor of mathematics at the Colorado School of Mines, she is recognized for her pioneering research examining outcomes assessment and gender equity in education. Moskal has developed assessment tools used within her department and campus-wide, and her scholarship has had a profound impact on primary, secondary, undergraduate and graduate science and technology education in schools throughout Colorado and across the country.
Moskal is also a co-founder of Tech Camp 101, a summer experience introducing low-income middle school students to technology, and is active in providing curriculum assistance and procuring laboratory supplies and equipment for a middle school in impoverished Uganda.
Moskal and four other Mind, Heart and Spirit honorees received their awards at a luncheon on Duquesne’s campus in Pittsburgh, Pa., on Nov. 7.
