The Distinguished Scholars Reception was held Monday, April 4, in the AMU Monaghan Ballrooms to honor the recipients of the Lawrence G. Haggerty Award for Research Excellence, Way Klingler Young Scholar Awards and the Way Klingler Fellowship Awards.
Dr. Robert Fox is this year’s recipient of the Lawrence G. Haggerty Faculty Award for Research Excellence for his scholarship. Fox is a professor in the College of Education’s Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology. He is also a consulting psychologist for the Behavior Clinic. During his 33 years as a faculty member at Marquette, Fox has become a national leader in early childhood mental health treatment. The program he developed, Early Pathways, is seen as a model for treating the issues experienced by young children living in poverty.
The 2015-16 Way Klingler Young Scholar Award recipients are Drs. Murray Blackmore, Corinne Bloch-Mullins, Gerry Canavan and Mehdi Maadooliat. Way Klingler Young Scholar Awards support promising young scholars in critical stages of their careers with awards of up to $32,000. They are intended to fund $2,000 in operating costs and to cover up to 50 percent of salary to afford the recipient a one-semester sabbatical.
The Way Klingler Sabbatical and Way Klingler Teaching Enhancement Award winners were announced in February.
More in-depth information on the award recipients will be publicized in a print piece that will be shared with the university community in May.
