From the
The Douglas W. Bradbury Award recognizes a member of the
Clemson faculty "who has made outstanding contributions to the
Calhoun Honors College." If you're a senior by hours, or planning to
graduate on or before December 2016, you are eligible to nominate
your favorite professor for this prestigious award.
In selecting the Bradbury Award winner, the Calhoun Honors College Committee looks for involvement in the development and
teaching of honors courses; involvement as Honors thesis/project
advisor; service on departmental, collegiate and/or university honors committees; and service to Honors students as a mentor/
advisor.
The nominating process is a little complicated, so you might want to
enlist the help of your potential nominee's department chair, who
can offer advice and help facilitate matters, or even serve as a conominator (I am happy to help also if you have questions about the
process). Nominators are expected to write a letter on behalf of
their candidate, and to make sure that the nominee is aware of
what materials need to be submitted to his or her Dean's office by
the February 26, 2016 deadline.
More information is available at http://blogs.clemson.edu/insideclemson/inside-news/nominate-faculty-for-the-douglas-w-bradburyaward/. Act fast! This is your chance to recognize one of the many
deserving faculty who help make your Honors education possible.
The Bradbury Award will be awarded in May at the general faculty
meeting and again at the senior Honors recognition ceremony.
Happy nominating!

Tiger
Talks, is a
pilot program designed to
take students
through a 4week dialogue experience in order
to help them
develop in
critical thinking, having
diverse conversations,
and bettering
their relationship with
their peers,

www.clemson.edu/cuhonors

The personal and professional development of students is


a cornerstone of the higher education process. The purpose of Tiger Talks is to help students develop in these
areas by 1) engaging in reflection and introspection regarding social identity related issues, 2) providing an opportunity for students to learn and practice skills that will
help them better engage with other members of the Clemson Community; and 3) developing critical thinking skills.
Students who participate in the Tiger Talks program will be able
to:
Identify important aspects of their personal backgrounds
Articulate the value of understanding different perspectives
Describe and demonstrate principles of positive social engagement in communication with others
Utilize specific communication tools in order to engage in productive conversations on difficult topics

Students will accomplish this through completion of a 4week dialogue experience during which they will engage
with peers from diverse backgrounds, learn more about
the use of dialogue as an effective method of communication, and practice those skills with their peers. Students
will meet once a week for 2 hours throughout the 4-week
experience. During that time they will be introduced to
theoretical concepts, historical issues, as well as gain allyship skills to create a more inclusive community.
