Three IU Bloomington faculty members have been named 2022 Provost Professors, and winners of the Tracy M. Sonneborn Award and the Mary Burgan Distinguished Service Award have been announced.
Provost Professors are Amanda Diekman, in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences; Betsi Grabe, in The Media School; and John Salzer, in the Department of Astronomy. Each department is part of the College of Arts and Sciences.
Winner of the Tracy M. Sonneborn Award is Sanya Carley, a professor in the Paul H. O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs and director of the Master of Public Affairs Program and the O’Neill Online MPA Program.
Liese van Zee, professor in the Department of Astronomy, has been awarded the 2022 Mary Burgan Distinguished Service Award.
“Professors Diekman, Grabe, Salzer, Carley and van Zee have brought honor and prestige to Indiana University through their research and related work, and have enriched the lives of their students through their devotion to teaching and mentorship,” Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs Eliza Pavalko said. “It is truly a pleasure to see them receive this recognition, which is so well deserved.”
Carley will present the annual Sonneborn Lecture at a time and location to be announced later. All honorees will be celebrated at a reception in the coming academic year.
The Sonneborn award and lecture are named for the late IU biologist Tracy M. Sonneborn, a renowned geneticist who was also highly regarded for his teaching. The Provost Professor position, originally called Chancellor’s Professor, was created in 1995, to honor those who have achieved local, national and international distinction in both teaching and research/creative activity. The Mary Burgan Distinguished Service Award, first presented in 1986, recognizes faculty who exhibit distinguished service to the university, a profession, a discipline or the public.
Recipients of all these awards are chosen by a faculty committee sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs.Read about the recipients in IU Bloomington Today
