Baron Receives ARHU Faculty Service Award

Professor Sabrina Baron has been given the Excellence in Service award at ARHU's annual Faculty and Staff Convocation, held on September 8th at the Clarice Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Baron has been a visiting assistant professor in the Department of History since 2002, during which time she has made many outstanding contributions to the department in teaching, scholarship, and committee work. Despite a sometimes punishing teaching load, Sabrina Baron has also been a major force on campus, working to improve the conditions under which Professional Track Faculty are employed at the university. Baron has served on the department's Executive Committee four times and worked on the department's last internal review. In ARHU, she has been tasked with offices on the Collegiate Council and has been a four-term member of the University Senate, where she has served on the subcommittees on Faculty Affairs, General Education, and Representation and Governance. Currently, she serves on the Senate's Executive Committee. Professor Baron is the first recipient of ARHU's new Excellence in Service Award for Professional Track Faculty, an honor for which she is long overdue.
