2014 Lynton Award finalists
NERCHE and the Center for Engaged Democracy at Merrimack College are delighted to announce the selection of ten finalists for the 2014 Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty. The pool of candidates was extraordinary and represents a range of institutions and disciplines.

Ernest Lynton framed faculty scholarly activity as inclusive, collaborative, and problem-oriented work in which academics share knowledge-generating tasks with the public and involve community partners and students as participants in public problem solving. The community-engaged work of the following faculty members serves as a model of the public scholarship that Lynton championed.

The ten 2014 Lynton Award finalists include two faculty members from AASCU member institutions: Valerie Francisco, Sociology and Social Work, University of Portland and Travis Hicks, Interior Architecture, University of North Carolina Greensboro.

The remaining seven finalists are: Semra Aytur, Health Management and Policy, University of New Hampshire; Tracey Gendron, Gerontology, Virginia Commonwealth University; Adriana Katzew, Art Education, Massachusetts College of Art and Design; Zak Montgomery, English and Modern Languages, Wartburg College; Jonathan Rosa, Anthropology, University of Massachusetts Amherst; Alan Tinkler, Education, University of Vermont; Estrella Torrez, Arts and Humanities, Michigan State University; and Jomella Watson-Thompson, Applied Behavioral Science, University of Kansas.
