The Outstanding Scholarly Contribution awards recognize specific, distinct scholarly accomplishments by Bentley faculty each year.
Dr. Jane Fedorowicz, the Chester B. Slade professor of Accounting and Information Systems, received the 2016-2017 Mee Family Prize for a lifetime of research excellence.
Bentley Professor of Natural and Applied Sciences P. Thompson (“Thom”) Davis has been researching the history of deglaciation in Canada and New England for decades. Recently, he and two colleagues (Asst. Prof. Jeremy Shakun at Boston College and Professor Paul Bierman at The University of Vermont) were awarded a three-year, $265,117 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study the timing and rate of the thinning of the southeastern Laurentide Ice Sheet (LIS) during the last major period of deglaciation after the Pleistocene epoch, or the “Ice Age.”
Bentley University’s Co-Provost and Dean of Arts and Sciences Daniel Everett talked with us recently about a wide range of topics, including being featured in a new book by Tom Wolfe, two of his own upcoming books, the importance of studying the origins of language, and the value of a fusion approach to business education.
Hosted by the Dean of Business, the Dean of Arts and Sciences, and the Jeanne and Dan Valente Center for Arts and Sciences, the Bentley community recently came together to toast faculty members who have published a book in the past academic year (2015-2016). Books and covers were on display for guests to peruse and enjoy.
Please peruse the following select examples of our faculty research efforts that have either been published or accepted by leading outlets, as well as examples of awards and honors our faculty have received. For previous lists, click here.
