Applied Science staff and faculty were recently recognized for their outstanding contributions to the Faculty in three categories: the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Service for staff, the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Service for faculty, and the Special Dean’s Award for Outstanding Service. Civil professor Bernard Laval was selected to receive one of the two the Dean’s Awards for Excellence in Service for faculty.

His work in safety has been extraordinary, ensuring that the Department in general, as well as the labs and fields where students are engaged in hands-on projects, are as safe as possible.  Bernard is highly engaged in the day to day affairs of the Department. He supports a wide range of committees and processes associated with the recruitment of new students, and the processing of academic issues. He is described by his colleagues as going “above and beyond what is required,” making significant efforts to support student clubs, promote and recognize student achievement, and to enhance the quality and diversity of the department’s student body.
