The Office of Sponsored Program's Recognition Reception

Fri, 6 Oct 2017 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The Office of Sponsored Programs will be hosting our 2nd Recognition Reception October 6, 2017 from 2-4pm in the Festival Ballroom to honor all involved in the pursuit of external funding. The Office of Sponsored Programs as well as the Office of Research and Scholarship will be presenting select awards to faculty and staff for their accomplishments during fiscal year 2017 (July 01, 2016 – June 30, 2017) and throughout their career at JMU. Hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and refreshments will be served.

The Office of Sponsored Programs has invited JMU’s new Provost, Heather Coltman to kick off the reception with welcoming remarks as well as Caroline Lubert from the Mathematics and Statistics Department to share her research with the aeroacoustics to the Antares rocket and any other research interests she is currently pursuing.

Afterwards, the Office of Sponsored Programs as well as the Office of Research and Scholarship will present a few selected awards to recipients who have been nominated by their Department Heads and Deans and recommended by a faculty selection committee for their outstanding work in research and scholarship. The final award recipients will be decided by the Office of Sponsored Programs and the Office of Research and Scholarship.

Based on survey feedback from last year, the formal program of the reception will be shortened to allow more time for guest mingling. Guests are invited to attend as able, if they are unavailable to attend the event in its entirety.

To RSVP to this event please email Megan Resch at reschmm@jmu.edu. We welcome guests to submit a photo and short bio with their RSVP, to be displayed on a slideshow during the reception.
