ArtSci Council honors faculty, staff with awards

Seven individuals from the faculty and staff of Arts & Sciences were honored at the annual ArtSci Council Faculty Awards Recognition Ceremony on April 15 in the Women’s Building Formal Lounge.

Recognized for positively influencing the educational experiences of undergraduates, the 2008 faculty award recipients are Jonathan Chase, Ph.D., associate professor of biology; Tili Boon Cuillé, Ph.D., assistant professor of French; Richard Loomis, Ph.D., associate professor of chemistry; Sean McWilliams, assistant dean; Jill Pasteris, Ph.D., professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences; Bradley Stoner, Ph.D., M.D., associate professor of anthropology and of medicine; and Wei Wang, lecturer in Chinese.

In an annual rite of spring, the ArtSci Council, the undergraduate organization and executive governing body for the College of Arts & Sciences, solicits nominations for the awards from all Arts & Sciences students.

“One of ArtSci Council’s roles is to help students recognize faculty and staff who have been influential in their undergraduate careers,” said Warren J. Davis, assistant dean in Arts & Sciences and a faculty and staff advisor to ArtSci Council.

“Each year’s awardees are outstanding examples of the contributions that Arts & Sciences faculty and staff make toward the intellectual development of WUSTL students.”

Senior Ross Andrese, outgoing ArtSci Council president, presided over the ceremony.
