Dr. Larry Faulk, associate professor of management in the University of Arkansas - Fort Smith College of Business, has been awarded the 2020 Excellence to the University, to the Profession, and to the Community Service Award in recognition of his dedication to service through various committees, recruitment, clubs, and data gathering.
“I am humbled and especially honored that I have been recognized for my service to the College of Business, the university and the community because the award was determined by my peers,” said Dr. Faulk.
Dr. Faulk stated that UAFS has created an environment in which services are supported strongly by the administration, staff and faculty. The Excellence to the University, to the Profession, and to the Community Service Award supports faculty who pursue service projects that are important to the students.
“On a daily basis we see our peers contributing to the success of their colleges, the university as a whole and the broader community,” he said. “It creates an expectation that you serve in some way beyond simply being an effective educator.”
Dr. Faulk said he is dedicated to the mission of the College of Business, which is to help transform students into business-ready professionals by the time they graduate.
“At the beginning of every semester, I tell my students that, in addition to learning the material relevant to the particular class, I also will help them make progress towards being that professional, whichever path they choose.”
