Giese Wins University Faculty Excellence Award

Dr. Mark Giese, who teaches production courses primarily, and who has led the Summer Media Camp that brings high schoolers to UALR, has won the university’s 2012 award in public service.

Each year UALR gives Faculty Excellence Awards in three categories—teaching, public service, and research—to overall winners selected by off-campus professionals from winners across the academic colleges.  Dr. Giese was the winner in public service for the College of Professional Studies, which includes the SMC.

Among Dr. Giese’s other accomplishments are extending UALR’s reach to work with the Arkansas Education Association to help secondary school teachers broaden their technical expertise, coordinating an estimated 50 technology-related seminars, and generously assisting community and church organizations, in keeping with the spirit of an urban university.
