Outstanding Faculty Service Award

Ferrari received the award for her service to the university and students. She received early tenure and promotion and has published two well-reviewed scholarly books along with numerous articles and book chapters. She is the model of a teacher/scholar, according to nominator Zach Justus. Ferrari is the chair of EPPC, the Faculty Development Advisory Board, the CME curriculum committee, the Quality Online Learning and Teaching lead for campus, and she leads department assessment. Many faculty participate, some faculty lead at one level, but Chiara has one or more key leadership roles at every level. Ferrari is involved with CSU International Programs, she leads the Global Faculty Initiative, and serves on the Study Abroad Advisory Board. She recognizes the benefits and challenges of a global campus and contributes greatly to diversify the campus through internationalization at all levels.
