The Outstanding Faculty Service Awards program seeks to recognize Temple University faculty who have participated in service at an outstanding level, to encourage faculty to participate in service activities, and to honor faculty members' service.
The Office of the Provost and Faculty Senate Steering Committee recently hosted an awards ceremony honoring 17 Temple faculty for their service contributions to their department or college or participation in university-wide activities.
Speakers at the Nov. 12 event, which was held in Alter Hall’s MBA Commons, included Temple Provost Provost Hai-Lung Dai and Senate President Mark Rahdert. A jazz trio of students from the Boyer College of Music and Dance provided music for the event.
Awards were presented to one faculty member from each of Temple’s schools and colleges. James Corbin, was awarded this honor from the School of Social Work! He was honored for his work beyond the expected duties of instructional faculty.
At the top of his accomplishments has been the establishment of The Family Center, which provides free services and support for military affiliated families impacted by war. He has single-handedly taken The Family Center at Temple University from the initial concept stage to a viable community resource and field placement laboratory for graduate students.
In addition, James has spearheaded an admissions policy process improvement, developed two new online electives, has chaired the Technology Committee, and has served on two other school committees. He has proposed a post-graduate certificate in Military Counseling.
As his nomination packet reads: Most importantly, as an alum, Mr. Corbin is an exceptional citizen of, and ambassador for, Temple University. Congratulations, James Corbin!
