Faculty in the School of Professional and Continuing Studies celebrated promotion announcements and service awards during the annual awards ceremony held during the spring faculty meeting on January 5, 2017.

In addition to celebrating the accomplishments of the School’s faculty, the meeting featured a presentation titled “Favorite Tips for Classroom Teaching” by Dr. Joe Ben Hoyle, master teacher and Associate Professor of Accounting in the University of Richmond Robins School of Business.
