Dr. Beth Canfield-Simbro Recognized for Leadership in Community Service
April 14, 2009
Dr. Beth Canfield-Simbro, assistant professor of human performance and sport business and co-director of the honors program, has been selected as one of the Honorable Mention recipients of the 2009 David Hoch Memorial Award for Excellence in Service by Ohio Campus Compact.
Ohio Campus Compact, a non-profit membership organization of 50 Ohio colleges and universities with strong community service, service-learning and/or civic engagement programs on their campuses awards outstanding college faculty service leaders the David Hoch Memorial Award for Excellence in Service.
The David Hoch Memorial Award for Excellence in Service was designed to recognize and honor the outstanding work done by either a community service director or director of service-learning at an Ohio Campus Compact member institution. This award is named for the late David Hoch, the dean of honors at the University of Toledo, who served as the director of service-learning for OCC from 1999-2005. He was instrumental in initiating and nurturing the role of civic engagement at the University of Toledo, not only in the Honors Program, but in residence life and other departments as well. His guidance helped grow not only the academic service-learning, but also the student-led community service, and the presidential emphasis on broader civic engagement.
