BOWLING GREEN, O.—Dr. Ellen Broido, an associate professor in the Department of Higher Education and Student Affairs, received the President’s Award for Collaborative Research and Creative Work at the Faculty Recognition Awards March 29.

The award recognizes innovative research and creative work conducted by faculty members in collaboration with graduate students. Broido received a $2,500 cash award and an additional $2,500 will be transferred to her discretionary research account.

The team of Broido and graduate assistant Kirsten Brown produced a detailed study of the gendered experience of classified, administrative and faculty women with a history of extended service to a single university.

“This body of work marks a unique and necessary contribution to the field and has been, or will be, presented and published at several national forums within the discipline. It was jointly conceived, planned and implemented by Dr. Broido and Ms. Brown,” said Dr. Rodney Rogers, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost.

In her nomination letter, Brown explained that Broido gives her students hands-on research experiences and builds relationships with them as equal colleagues. She praised Broido for providing her with opportunities for personal and professional development and concluded her nomination by writing “specifically Ellen has played an essential role in supporting my career aspirations to become a faculty member. Prior to entering the doctoral program, I did not have any experience with professional conference presentations, paper submissions or development of book proposals. Clearly our collaborative research projects have led to several important professional development opportunities.”

“Dr. Broido’s commitment to graduate education, innovative research and personal and professional development of graduate students truly reflect the spirit of the collaborative research and creative work award,” said Rogers.
