The Bennion Center would like to announce this year’s Faculty Award Winners and offer congratulations and gratitude for their incredible service to Utah communities. This year’s Public Service Professor Award winner is Professor Milad Hosseini-Mozari of the Multi-Disciplinary Design (MDD) Program in the College of Architecture and Planning. The 2021 Distinguished Faculty Service Award winner is Professor Cathleen Zick of the Family & Consumer Studies Department, College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
In Feb. 2020, the University of Utah received a 2020 Community Engagement Classification from the Carnegie Foundation. This classification measures the U’s commitment to community-related activities. More than an award, this classification is a designation that lasts for 10 years and can be renewed.
Are you looking for a way to get involved this semester? Check out the Service Corner at the Bennion Center kiosk inside Kahlert Village for COVID-19 safe projects! Currently, there are options to knit hats, sew face masks, and write letters to seniors! Although COVID-19 has changed the way a lot of things look, it’s still possible to do some service and give back to the community!
