During the 2017-2018 academic year, two members of the Political Science Department were recognized for their exemplary administrative service.
Allison Kuehne earned the 2018 Staff Employee of the Year Award within the College of Arts and Sciences. Only one individual earns the award from each college, and Allison was the Arts and Sciences winner. This is a recognition of the outstanding work that she does in support of students across the university and the faculty in our department. We are incredibly fortunate to have Allison as a member of our department!
Jeff Pickering was awarded the Presidential Award for Outstanding Department Head. This annual award acknowledges the recipient’s accomplishments and governance as a department head, cooperation with other units in the College and University, and service to external clientele, professional societies, and to the community. This is well deserved recognition after ten years of service to the department.
Overall, these awards are indicative of the high-quality teaching and service provided by the faculty and staff within our department.
