Dr. James E. Mackin, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, is pleased to announce that Dr. Susan Bernardin, Professor of English, will deliver this year’s Susan Smith Lecture titled “STORY-HISTORY-STORY: Contemporary Native American Literary and Visual Arts,” on Tuesday, April 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the Craven Lounge, Morris Conference Center. A hearty hors d’oeuvre reception will follow the lecture in Otsego Grille.
Created to recognize faculty achievement outside the classroom, the Susan Sutton Smith Faculty Prize for Academic Excellence is named in memory of the late SUNY Oneonta professor of English. Dr. Bernardin is the twenty-second recipient of this prize. This event and the student awards presented are made possible by the generous gifts of SUNY Oneonta Alumni to the 2015-2016 Fund for Oneonta. The Susan Sutton Smith Faculty Prize for Academic Excellence is made possible by an endowment created through the generosity of Dr. Thomas and Mrs. Mary Smith in memory of their daughter, Susan, and in honor of her commitment to academic excellence. The lecture is free and open to the public.
