Penny Crane Award for Distinguished Service: Cynthia Dooling

Cindy Dooling, 2014 Penny Crane Award Recipient
The Penny Crane Award for Distinguished Service was established by the SIGUCCS board in 2000 to honor the memory of Penny Crane, an active SIGUCCS member from the mid-70’s until her untimely death in 1999. A special award was presented posthumously to Penny Crane at the 1999 SIGUCCS Fall Conference to honor her long-time service and contributions to SIGUCCS and ACM. Since then, the Penny Crane Award for Distinguished Service was established to recognize other individuals who have made significant contributions to SIGUCCS and computing in higher education.

SIGUCCS Hall of Fame 2014 Inductees: Bob Haring-Smith, Karen McRitchie, Parrish Nnambi, and Elizabeth Wagnon

The ACM SIGUCCS Hall of Fame was established to recognize individuals whose specific contributions have had a positive impact on the organization and therefore on the professional careers of the members and their institutions. The “Hall of Fame” is a web site that contains the names and short biographies of those who are honored for specific contributions. Recipients also receive a physical token of the award.

Communication Award Winners

Each year ACM SIGUCCS sponsors a competition to honor the best publications, websites and promotional material produced by university and college centers. The competition recognizes excellence in developing useful and attractive publications in a variety of media categories and provides SIGUCCS conference participants with an opportunity to review publications that may help them develop or enhance their own work. The winning entries are displayed during the conference for perusal by the conference participants.
