RCAH professor Estrella Torrez finalist for 2014 Ernest A. Lynton Award

Dr. J. Estrella Torrez, RCAH assistant professor, has been named one of ten finalists for the 2014 Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty.

The annual Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty recognizes a faculty member who connects his or her teaching, research, and service to community engagement. The Lynton Award is designated as an award for early career faculty who are pre-tenure at tenure-granting campuses or early career--within the first six years--at campuses with long-term contracts.

Following an external review process, the recipient of the Award will be announced in early August 2014.
