Faculty Awards

The Mee Family Prize and the Dr. Gregory H. Adamian Award for Lifetime Teaching Excellence serve as recognition for outstanding research and pedagogical achievements, respectively. 

Mee Family Prize

Michael '66 and Judy Mee established an endowed fund to highlight and reward the lifetime of scholarly work demonstrated by our most distinguished faculty. The Mee Family Prize is an annual award that recognizes a full-time faculty member who holds full professor status at Bentley whose exceptional research contributions, both past and present, have clearly enhanced the scholarly standing and reputation of the University.

Tony Buono
Professor of Management

The irony isn’t lost on Tony Buono

Indeed, as the Management and Sociology professor points out, “I’ve been fascinated by change my entire professional life — studying it, teaching it, writing about it — but I’ve been teaching at the same place for 40 years.”

Adamian Lifetime Achievement Award

In 1979, former Chancellor and President Emeritus Dr. Gregory H. Adamian established an endowed fund at Bentley to provide perpetual funding for awards to honor outstanding faculty members. This led to the creation of the Dr. Gregory H. Adamian Award for Teaching Excellence, which had previously been announced at commencement and has been awarded to over 60 recipients to date. Starting in fall 2016, the endowed fund also supports an award to recognize lifetime teaching excellence and to acknowledge long-term pedagogical leadership demonstrated by our most distinguished faculty.  

The Dr. Gregory H. Adamian Award for Lifetime Teaching Excellence is an annual award that recognizes a long-serving Bentley faculty member whose exceptional pedagogical contributions, including outstanding classroom teaching and the development of teaching-related materials, have clearly enhanced the reputation of the University and the development of its students.

Barbara Paul-Emile
Professor of English and Media Studies

“There are many classes here that teach you how to make a living,” says Barbara Paul-Emile. “But only a handful that teach you how to live.”  

For more than 40 years, the professor of English has ensured her Bentley courses meet the latter category.
