Share This:

Fifty-four faculty members have been awarded or difference-in-pay leaves to conduct research, write or travel during the 2015-16 academic year.

Projects range from studies into international markets and the effects of low tide conditions on intertidal seaweeds, to the contributions of Japanese-American members of the U.S. military during the U.S.-led occupation of Japan and the composition of music for a new ballet.

Among the recipients is Teresa Crawford, professor of elementary and bilingual education, who will spend her four-month paid leave disseminating data from the four-year federally funded Project Create!
