Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty. Nominated by the KSU Center for Engagement and Community Development, Katie was selected from a pool of 35 candidates representing a range of institutions and disciplines.

CELA 2014 abstracts are due on September 13. The theme is
Layers: Landscape, City and Community

A note from Associate Dean Ornelas: When covering the bulletin boards, please make sure you use fire coated paper, which is available in white or black. Also, please remember that no more than 20% of the walls can be covered with flammable materials. The Fire Marshall interprets that to mean that we cannot paper our entire bulletin boards with flammable materials. So please leave the original white bulletin board [which is made of fire resistant material] or some of the fire resistant paper visible when you post things on the walls.
