Reception celebrates successes in science

The 15th Annual Faculty of Science Celebration of Success, April 1 in the CAW Student Centre, recognized the extraordinary achievements of its educators and researchers, says dean Marlys Koschinsky.

“Whether it be a high impact publication, a prestigious grant or award, demonstrated teaching effectiveness, or superlative efforts on a special project,” she said, “I want to recognize and celebrate the impact of what we do in science, and to share our accomplishments with the University of Windsor community and beyond.”

This year’s event featured donations to support science and technology programs in local youth organizations. A gift to Scouts Canada will see it purchase a space exploration kit, and one to Girl Guides of Canada will allow local troops to share a robotics kit.

Koschinsky conferred a lifetime achievement award on biology professor Daniel Heath, director of the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research, citing his stellar record as a researcher, teacher and mentor.

“What excites me most is what is yet to come,” she said. “He shows no sign of slowing down and I know that we’ll be adding more great things to this list of accomplishments as years go by.”

The reception featured more than 100 awards; find a full list on the faculty website.
