President’s Professional Development Award: Dianne McCarthy

I am pleased to announce that Dianne McCarthy, associate professor of elementary education, literacy, and educational leadership, has received the President's Professional Development Award. She will attend the National Council of Teachers in Mathematics Conference, which will be held in Nashville, Tennessee, October 2–4. At the conference, Dr. McCarthy will gain a better understanding of issues of equity in mathematics, which will support her goal to develop a course for education majors that focuses on increasing girls’ competence and confidence throughout STEM classes. Her professional development award profile can be viewed on the Professional Development Center website.

The President’s Professional Development Award supports professional development opportunities that enrich the experiences of all employees on campus by promoting opportunities that allow employees to build on their expertise, identify best practices, and network with others.

Nominations for the President’s Professional Development Award will reopen in September and will be posted in the Daily Bulletin. For more information about the award criteria and the award recipient selection process, please visit the Professional Development website.
