The student affairs division of Miami University recognized seven faculty members with the Excellence in Career Development Award.

Jim Kiper, professor and chair of the computer science and engineering department, is one of this year’s recipients.

The award recognizes faculty who actively support the development of the Miami University career community, forge career-related partnerships, and provide exemplary direct delivery of career development services to undergraduate students.

Active career development support may include incorporating career development and career advising into teaching and student advising.  In addition, the faculty may actively seek out partnerships with employers, graduate/professional programs, career services and others who may provide internship, job or graduate/professional school opportunities for students within his/her academic division or throughout the university.  

Jim Kiper was nominated by other faculty/students and received both a certificate of commendation and a $500 monetary reward. A reception was held last week to honor Jim and the other six winners.
