Project MALES would like to congratulate faculty affiliate Dr. Deryl Hatch-Tocaimaza on receiving the 2018 Barbara K. Townsend Emerging Scholar Award, at this year’s Council for the Study of Community Colleges. The award is names after the late Dr. Barbara K. Townsend, who was a professor of higher education and director of the Center for Community College Research at the University of Missouri-Columbia. She received her B.A. (1965) and M.A. (1967) degrees from the State University of New York at Albany in English, and Ed.D. (1984) degree in higher education from the College of William and Mary. She taught at Towson State University, State University of New York at Buffalo, and Thomas Nelson Community College. She was a graduate faculty member and administrator at Loyola University Chicago and the University of Memphis. Her research agenda was driven by an interest in baccalaureate attainment, particularly for women and minorities. The core of her research was a focus on the community college as a major vehicle for facilitating this attainment, including through the community college baccalaureate.
Congratulations from the Project MALES team, we wish you continuous success in all your future endeavors!
