Dr. Michael Green Receives 2017 Eastern Educational Research Association’s Distinguished Service Award
Dr. Michael S. Green, Hudson Valley Community College’s vice president for technology, institutional assessment and planning, will receive the 2017 Eastern Educational Research Association’s Distinguished Service Award at the group’s annual meeting in February in Richmond, Va. Dr. Green has been an EERA member for more than 30 years and has served its Board of Directors as secretary, treasurer and president from 2003 to 2005.
“The EERA Distinguished Service Award is currently in its third year of presentation, and Dr. Green’s extraordinary service and commitment to the association is highlighted in his being presented with this year’s award,” said EERA President Michael T. Miller, a dean at the University of Arkansas. “Dr. Green was nominated by five members of the association who cited his service in multiple board positions, including his two-year term as president, as being particularly important to his recognition. Under his leadership, the association embraced the changes of the internet-driven world in becoming an association of scholars who communicate in different ways. He was visionary in building an online presence for the association, and that vision is still the template in use for EERA today.”
