Adler University Vancouver Recognizes Faculty and Staff Dean’s Excellence Awards

Three years ago, Adler University’s Vancouver Campus established the “Dean’s Awards for Excellence,” which recognizes Adler faculty and staff for their outstanding commitment to teaching and service. On September 21, Executive Dean Bradley O’Hara presented five individuals who have displayed a strong commitment to Adler’s values, while supporting and engaging Adler’s students.

Sandra Song, program director for Adler Vancouver’s Master of Public Policy and Administration (MPPA), has been awarded the Dean’s Award for Faculty Excellence. Song has shown herself as a leader, reshaping and growing the MPPA program, while also establishing the Graduate Preparatory Program (GPP). Her continued mentorship of MPPA students has led to great student engagement and success within the program.

Matthew Beasley, an Adler graduate and current adjunct faculty member, was awarded the Dean’s Award for Adjunct Faculty Excellence. After joining  Adler faculty four years ago within the Counseling Psychology program, students have reported his courses as engaging, current, and practical.

Christine Martinez joined Adler University Vancouver’s Registrar three years ago and has the proven ability to provide students, faculty, and staff with essential service. Martinez has been awarded the Dean’s Award for Staff Excellence. With a growing student base, Adler University recognizes Martinez as a crucial team member for university growth.

Kyle MacLellan was honored as the recipient of the Dean’s Newbie Award for his superb work as Manager of Facilities and Events. While adjusting event procedures and safety protocols for events during the height of the pandemic, MacLellan also provided a safe return to campus this fall.

Asa-Sophia Maglio, Program Director for Adler Vancouver’s Counselling Psychology program, received the Dean’s Extra Mile Award. This award was earned due to Maglio creating a Socially Responsible Practice Portfolio (SRPP) within the Counselling Psychology programs. The recent addition of a Black in Canada film series to the SRPP was well done and attracted much interest across Vancouver’s campus.

Adler University recognizes and honors the hard work our faculty and staff have exemplified throughout the past year.
