CED Newsletter Wins Design Competition

The winter 1997 edition of the College of Environmental Design newsletter CED Views recently received a silver award in the Summit Creative Awards international design competition.

The Summit awards recognize exceptional creative work in 16 categories by small design firms and creative groups in the United States, Canada and Australia.

CED Views, published three times yearly, is edited by Sheila Dickie, director of alumni and public relations for the College, and designed by Chen Design Associates of San Francisco. The design firm developed the look and feel of the issue – its 3D-like masthead and all other design elements – in cooperation with Dickie and CED Dean Harrison Fraker.

Social Sciences Awards

The Division of Social Sciences in Letters and Science has named the winners of its annual distinguished teaching and distinguished service awards.

Recipients of the teaching award are Ann Swidler, sociology; Reginald Zelnik, history; Maurice Obstfeld, economics; and Sharon Inkelas, linguistics.

This year’s theme for the teaching award is innovation and effectiveness in working with individual students, as well as sustained excellence in undergraduate and graduate classroom teaching. Each recipient received an honorarium of $3,000.

The outstanding service award went to Sheldon Zedeck, professor of psychology.

This award recognizes tenured or tenure-track faculty who have been particularly generous, effective and responsible in serving their departments and the wider campus.

The winners will be honored at a private reception hosted by William S. Simmons, dean of social sciences.
