Mike Guebert on winning the 2011 Hiltunen Faculty Award
Dr. Michael Guebert, Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Taylor University and the 2011 Brian Douglas Hiltunen Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Scholarship of Engagement Winner
I felt honored to be selected for the 2011 Hiltunen Faculty Award. I thank the selection committee for choosing me and also my service-engagement colleagues at Taylor University for supporting me. This recognition may have come to me from Indiana Campus Compact, but it is possible only because of Indiana Campus Compact’s encouragement, development, and support for me and for Taylor over the last decade. Any success that Taylor and I have enjoyed in community-engaged scholarship is a direct reflection on the continued and excellent support from Indiana Campus Compact through funding and professional development opportunities. I attended many Indiana Campus Compact events and trainings during the last ten years and I consistently come away from them refreshed and invigorated to continue the pursuit of engaged scholarship at the personal and the institutional levels.
