Dr. Joseph E. Hightower, Professor of Applied Ecology and Assistant Leader of the NC Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, was the 25th Annual (2013) recipient of the NCSU Libraries Faculty Award for his steady and strong support of the libraries’ mission and activities.
Joe has served on the University Library Committee and as Departmental Representative to the Library for many years. He established an endowment to support library collections, and he has championed innovative teaching initiatives that complement the libraries’ emerging role in the management and dissemination of digital information. Joe pioneered distance education in our Department and regularly teaches online classes to our students at the CMAST laboratory on the NC coast and other locations. He recently developed and taught an innovative graduate course “Scientific Communication in a Digital World” that engaged library staff with graduate students to discuss the developing role of academic libraries in digital information management and publishing.
The award was presented to Joe by Dr. Susan Nutter, Vice Provost and Director of Libraries, at a lunch reception held 21October 2013 at McKimmon Center. See photo below.
