Barringer Award

The Barringer Award

The Brookdale Alumni Association presents the Barringer Award for Educational Excellence annually to individuals and organizations who epitomize the quality of excellence in education and who have made a significant impact on the College and our students. It is called the Barringer Award in honor of Dr. Bob Barringer, Brookale’s third president. It is the highest award the Alumni Association gives, and reflects the high regard and deep respect held for honorees by their associates and colleagues.

Brookdale faculty, staff, administrators, alumni and College Trustees (current and former) are eligible to be nominated. The Brookdale Alumni Association invites the college community to nominate individuals or organizations who meet the following criteria:

  • Outstanding service to students via the classroom or other College-sponsored educational activities that enhance students’ educational experiences and opportunity to succeed (30%)
  • Outstanding service to the institution in a leadership or inspirational role (30%)
  • Outstanding service to the community that reflects well on the institution and enhances the College’s image (30%)
  • Length of service (10%)
The Alumni Association Board of Trustees is honored to announce the recipients for 2017:

Laura Longo, Director for Institutional Research and Evaluation
