Gail M. Presbey awarded for faculty excellence

Highlighter & Laureate,
Fall 2003


Each year, the faculty select one to three of their peers to be honored with University Faculty Excellence Awards. These individuals are selected because they possess the qualities and skills that best exemplify the body of faculty at University of Detroit Mercy. Qualities include excellence in teaching and scholarly endeavors; service and active involvement in the University, the faculty member’s profession and the community. They also engage in personal and professional activities that express the University mission.

From the College of Liberal Arts & Education, Gail M. Presbey ’81, associate professor of Philosophy, received the Faculty Achievement Award at an October 17 reception. Suk H. Kim, professor of Finance in the College of Business Administration, received the Distinguished Faculty Award.

“This award shows that the faculty have confidence in my abilities in the areas of teaching, scholarship and services. It also shows that my colleagues appreciate my contributions, such as my cross-cultural approach to the study of Philosophy, my Peace and Social Justice courses, my courses for the Women’s Studies programs, my work for the Carney Latin American Archive and Arthur F. McGovern, S.J. Catholic Studies Program, to name just a few.”
