A GWSB professor, Edward J. Cherian, is the faculty recipient of the 2013 GW Award, which is presented each year to a student, professor, and staff member who works to improve the University’s ties to community.
“Each has shaped the University and made it the outstanding institution it is today,” said GW Provost Steven Lerman.
The recipients were honored at GW’s May 19 commencement.
“Every day I come to work and continue to learn; I spend more time learning than I do teaching – that’s what this institution allows me to do,” said Cherian, a professor of information systems and technology management.
Cherian has served on GW’s Innovation Task Force, a group charged with soliciting feedback from the community about GW’s strengths and potential for improvement in academics and operations.
He has also served on the University Budget Committee and the Faculty Senate Executive Committee, and was advisor on the development of GWSB’s online healthcare MBA.
“I am working with so many staff and faculty who are also committed to excellence in this University, and this has provided me with real satisfaction,” Cherian said.
The other winners were student Joshua D’Angelo, who graduated from the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences; and Deputy General Counsel Charles K. Barber.
