Rowan Day 2009

Come celebrate the richness and the many accomplishments of our students and employees at workshops, presentations and performances throughout Rowan Day.
It’s time to celebrate all things Rowan.
“Rowan Day offers a chance for the entire university to come together and applaud the exemplary work that helps make the University an exceptional place to teach, study and work,” James Newell, associate provost for academic affairs, says of the Rowan Day celebration, which will be held Friday, April 17, throughout campus.
“It’s truly a celebration of the very best of Rowan University.”
While Rowan Day promises a full schedule showcasing the achievements of students in academics and the arts, one of the highlights of the day will be the Celebrating Excellence Awards Ceremony (11 a.m., Boyd Recital Hall, Wilson Hall). During the ceremony, faculty and staff will be honored for distinguished teaching, mentoring, leadership and research.
Two professors—anthropology’s Maria Rosado and chemical engineering’s Zenaida Gephardt—will receive the Lindback Distinguished Teaching Award, while political science professor Bruce Caswell will accept the Joseph A. Barnes Award for Outstanding Service. Two other awards—the Gary Hunter Mentoring Award and the Faculty Research Achievement Award—also will be presented.
Another highlight of Rowan Day will be the 12th annual STEM Symposium (10 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m., Eynon Ballroom, Chamberlain Student Center), which showcases students’ scholarly activities and collaborative work in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
