Dr. Linda Putnam has been honored with the 2015 UCSB Faculty Research Lectureship Award. This honor is awarded annually to the faculty member determined to be the most distinguished for research or other creative achievement. Candidates are nominated by their peers, and the final selection is made by an Academic Senate committee consisting of previous Faculty Research Lecturers. This award is considered to be the highest honor the UCSB faculty can bestow on one of its members. The announcement will be made at the legislative meeting of the Faculty Senate on Thursday, March 12 at 3:30. A reception will be held in her honor at 3:00 in the U-Cen State Street Room.
