Four Huntley College of Agriculture faculty members were selected to receive Provost’s Teacher-Scholar Awards.

The four faculty members are:

  • Cord Brundage, assistant professor of animal and veterinary science.
  • Chitra Dabas, associate professor of apparel merchandising and management.
  • Gabriel Davidov-Pardo, assistant professor of human nutrition and food science.
  • Jon Phillips, professor and chair of the Department of Agribusiness & Food Industry Management/Agricultural Science.

The Division of Academic Affairs manages the awards program, which provides assigned time or professional development funds for tenure-track faculty to pursue scholarly, research, or creative activities.

The goals are to encourage their development as scholars, develop life-long learning to students, and blend teaching and scholarship into a single, synergistic endeavor.

Brundage will use his time to help students with their research projects; invite them to participate in his research; work as a student club advisor; and chaperone students at conferences. He also will teach senior students to produce quality literature reviews.

Dabas wants to develop retail merchandising case studies to enhance student learning.

Davidov-Pardo will train new students in lab techniques and procedures, write funding proposals for his research, and write one peer-reviewed paper.

Phillips plans to work on several projects, including submitting papers to a peer-reviewed journal and assisting graduate students in turning their theses into peer-reviewed journal articles.
