Education professor earns distinctions

Kris Gutiérrez, professor in the School of Education at the University of Colorado at Boulder, recently was named the inaugural recipient of the Provost's Chair, which recognizes faculty of extraordinary academic distinction. She also was ranked among the top 100 Influentials by Hispanic Business magazine.

The Provost's Chair designation is rare — never more than two chairs for the Boulder campus at any one time — and is intended for recruitment or retention of exceptional senior faculty. To be considered, a faculty member must be recognized nationally and internationally for distinguished contributions in research, in classroom teaching and mentoring, and in public service.

The magazine described Gutiérrez, who earned her Ph.d. in education from CU, this way: "With issues of equity and excellence as recurring themes in her work, she is committed to improving the educational condition of Hispanic students at school and throughout the community."

Charlene Lydick, C.P.M., associate director of procurement at the University of Colorado Procurement Service Center, recently was named president of the National Association of Educational Procurement (NAEP) Rocky Mountain Region.

NAEP promotes cutting-edge, cost-effective, and socially responsible procurement practices and programs. The association's active peer network works to advance professional development and foster community relations among its members.

Lydick joined the Procurement Service Center (PSC) in 2003. She is responsible for overseeing the university's purchasing agents and contract administrators, as well as for managing the strategic contracts and small business programs.

Art director takes post at national design association

Michael Campbell, art director of the University of Colorado at Boulder, recently was elected to the University and College Designers Association (UCDA) board of directors. He'll begin his term in January.

During the past 20 years, Campbell's award-winning designs on behalf of CU-Boulder have repeatedly achieved recognition by UCDA, the Council for the Support and Advancement of Education (CASE) and other professional communication organizations.

UCDA was founded in 1970 as the nation's first and only association for professionals dedicated to excellence in visual communications for educational institutions. Since its inception, it has grown to an organization of more than 1,000 members through the United States and Canada.
