SIUE College of Arts and Sciences Partners with the East St. Louis Center

2017-03-24 12:00:00 SIUE.edu

GregBudzbanThe Southern Illinois University Edwardsville College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) has begun a relationship with the SIUE East St. Louis Center (ESLC) that it expects to be ongoing, rewarding and mutually beneficial. 

The ESLC is the recipient of grant money that will fund six projects through CAS’ Targeted Funding Initiative (TFI). CAS received $200,000 from the 2017 winter session revenues and earmarked it for TFI. CAS Dean Greg Budzban, PhD, first created TFI grants in 2016. 

“It is becoming harder to get external funding, especially in the areas of the arts and sciences,” said Budzban. “I utilized the monies from the winter session to give back to the faculty. This is a good way to invest in the faculty, and what they’re doing. The purpose is to generate innovative ideas, to allow faculty to engage in projects that may not be feasible otherwise.” 

CAS faculty were invited to write proposals that related to the four TFI categories, identified by Budzban:

“One of the things that both Denise Cobb (provost and vice chancellor for Academic Affairs) and I have talked about is reimagining the humanities and the sciences, both in terms of instructional content and pedagogy.” Budzban said. “We see the idea of community engagement as a way of turning theory into practice and as a critical piece of innovative instruction in those traditional areas. 

“Collaborating with the East St. Louis Center is a perfect example of turning theory into practice, by working with students and the community in innovative ways.” 

JesseDixonCAS faculty were approved for the following TFI projects at the East St. Louis campus:

“Dean Budzban's decision to list the East St. Louis Center as a priority for the Targeted Funding Initiative has served as a catalyst for new collaborations between SIUE faculty and East St. Louis Center programs,” said ESLC Executive Director Jesse Dixon. “We believe that these new and innovative projects will directly benefit the students and families in our programs as well as lead to sustained partnerships between faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences and the SIUE East St. Louis Center.” 

Central to SIUE’s exceptional and comprehensive education, the College of Arts and Sciences has 19 departments and 85 areas of study. More than 300 full-time faculty/instructors deliver classes to more than 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Faculty help students explore diverse ideas and experiences, while learning to think and live as fulfilled, productive members of the global community. Study abroad, service-learning, internships, and other experiential learning opportunities better prepare SIUE students not only to succeed in our region's workplaces, but also to become valuable leaders who make important contributions to our communities. 

With a focus on empowering people and strengthening communities, the SIUE East St. Louis Center is dedicated to improving the lives of families and individuals - from pre-school through adult - in the Metro East. Head Start/Early Head Start and a charter high school are among the programs that offer the community renewed hope and an opportunity to reach educational, career and life goals. The Center also assigns first priority to encouraging, supporting and improving the educational success of the residents of East St. Louis and surrounding urban communities. The Center provides comprehensive programs, services and training in the areas of education, health, social services and the arts.

SIU SDM?s Martin Land Receives Moulton Award for Fixed Prosthodontics

2017-03-24 10:15:00 SIUE.edu

land-martinDr. Martin F. Land, professor of fixed prosthodontics at the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine (SIU SDM), was awarded the George M. Moulton Award for outstanding achievement in the Art and Science of Fixed Prosthodontics at the 66th Annual Scientific Session of the American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics in Chicago.   

The prestigious award is the highest honor bestowed by the Academy and recognizes members who have made a significant impact and contributions to the art and science of fixed prosthodontics and have demonstrated lifetime service to the field. Dr. Moulton, one of the visionary founders of the Academy, its first secretary and sixth president, was the first recipient of the award in 1992.

“Receiving an award of this magnitude is certainly an honor for Dr. Land,” said Dr. Bruce Rotter, dean of the SIU SDM. “The School of Dental Medicine takes pride in the accomplishments of its faculty, and we congratulate Dr. Land on this remarkable achievement.”

Dr. Jane Brewer, clinical associate professor and chair of restorative dentistry at the University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, State University of New York, took note of a number of Land’s accomplishments as she introduced him during the annual ceremony:

In addition to his service to the Academy, his contributions include serving as chair of the Section of Fixed Prosthodontics of the American Association of Dental Schools, president of Omicron Kappa Upsilon, Nu Xi Chapter, board member and president of the John F. Johnston Society for the Advancement of Prosthodontics, and board member, parliamentarian, and 2008 president of the American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics.
