Eren Branch, Ph.D., Receives First Drinan Award for Distinguished Service
Wednesday, May 6, 2009
The Patrick F. Drinan Award for Distinguished Service was established to honor the exemplary service contributions of former Dean Patrick Drinan during his many years as faculty member, as chair, and as dean. Dr. Drinan's service as chair of the Political Science and International Relations department and as dean of the college was pivotal in enriching the academic life of the college and the university. The award recognizes and celebrates outstanding service contributions, primarily but not exclusively, to the college. Service excellence is evidenced in breadth and depth of service over a sustained period of time. Such achievements demonstrate effective leadership and commitment to the mission and values of the University of San Diego.
Congratulations to Dr. Branch as the first recipient of the award.
