The University of Baltimore’s Debra Stanley, professor in the School of Criminal Justice, and Ivan Sascha Sheehan, associate professor in the School of Public and International Affairs, have been named recipients of a 2016 University System of Maryland Regents’ Faculty Award. Sheehan received the award for Excellence in Mentoring, while Stanley received the award for Excellence in Public Service. Both teach in UB’s College of Public Affairs.
“I’m proud that two of our finest professors have been recognized by the USM for their outstanding contributions, both to our institution and beyond,” said UB President Kurt L. Schmoke. “Professor Stanley and Professor Sheehan represent what is truly special about UB, and it’s gratifying for all of us here that their efforts are acknowledged by the Board of Regents.”
“This is great news not only for Debra and Sascha—it’s also wonderful for UB,” said Darlene Smith, executive vice president and provost. “To have two Regents Faculty Award winners on our faculty says a lot about what our campus is capable of, and how much we value and support their work as scholars, educators and leaders. My congratulations to them, and to us.”
The awards are the highest honor bestowed by the Board of Regents in recognition of exemplary faculty achievements. Stanley and Sheehan will join their fellow faculty winners at a special presentation ceremony hosted by the board on Friday, April 15, at the University of Maryland University College in Adelphi, Md.
Each year, up to 17 awards in five categories—mentoring; public service; research/scholarship/creative activity; teaching; and innovation—are presented to faculty from across the USM.
