Dr. Thalia Mulvihill Receives 2014 Annuit Coeptis Award

Dr. Thalia Mulvihill, Professor of Social Foundations and Higher Education, will receive the 2014 Annuit Coeptis Thalia MulvihillAward from College Student Educators International, the leading Student Affairs professional organization with 7,500 members representing 1,200 private and public colleges and universities from across the U.S. and around the world. 

This award honors faculty members for their lifetime contributions to students and the Student Affairs profession. Thalia will receive this award at the 2014 international conference of the association. In addition to her other responsibilities, Thalia serves as a faculty member associated with the Student Affairs Administration in Higher Education (SAAHE) Master of Arts program. The only other Ball State University recipient of this prestigious award was Dr. Jack Beyerl in 1981 for his contributions as Ball State’s Vice President for Student Affairs and Director of the Counseling Center.

The nomination was supported by Robert Morris (Associate Vice Provost and Dean of the Graduate School), Kay Bales (VP for Student Affairs), and Roger Wesssel (Director of the SAAHE program). A campus reception recognizing Thalia’s award and contribution to the SAAHE program will take place Monday, March 3, at 10:30 a.m. in the Student Center Music Lounge.
