Dr. Spurlock nominated for MAC Outstanding Faculty Award!

Dr. Linda Spurlock is Kent State’s nominee for the MAC Outstanding Faculty Award for Student Success!

The Mid-American Conference has established the new MAC Outstanding Faculty Award for Student Success. This first of its kind award will recognize one full-time faculty member nominee who has demonstrated a dedication to student success from each of the twelve MAC institutions. Dr. Spurlock was honored at Friday's basketball game against Buffalo (Feb. 21, 2020) along with Kent State's other two finalists, Dr. Asantewa Sunni-Ali and Dr. Julie Mazzei. Dr. Spurlock will move forward as Kent State's nomination and will be considered along with representatives from the other 11 universities in the MAC. 

From the 12 nominees a single winner will be chosen and will be announced on March 14th, 2020 during the MAC Basketball Championship. The winner will also be invited to attend the MAC Honors Dinner, along with one guest, on May 27th, 2020.

Dr. Spurlock’s nomination was based on her strong commitment to student success, inclusion, and demonstration of the MAC core values (e.g., academic achievement, commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, integrity).

Join us in congratulating Dr. Spurlock on this well-earned honor!
