Joan Durrance Community Engagement Award

The Joan Durrance Community Engagement Award periodically recognizes one or more UMSI faculty members. Faculty are honored for their excellence in building partnerships with communities to develop  successful, sustainable information-related projects that address societal challenges.

This award is named in honor of Professor Joan Durrance, who retired at the end of the 2010-2011 academic year. Dean Jeff MacKie-Mason called Durrance "a tireless advocate for the importance of information institutions and services in community development."
