Guell receives President’s Medal

April 21, 2017

Indiana State University honored seven educators during its annual Faculty Recognition Banquet Thursday evening. President Dan Bradley presented the President's Medal — the university's highest award for faculty — to Robert Guell, professor of economics.

“I am grateful to the many people who have had a role in developing my career at ISU,” Guell said. “From my colleagues in economics, to Dr. (John) Conant, my chairperson of 21 years, to administrators past and present, to the editorial staff of McGraw-Hill past and present, and to my Faculty Senate colleagues, particularly Dr. (Steven) Lamb, who helped me become a faculty leader; I will always remember and be grateful for your guiding wisdom.”

Guell joined Indiana State’s faculty in 1991 as an assistant professor of economics. In addition to serving as a professor of economics and a departmental undergraduate adviser, Guell was appointed as the interim chairperson of the department of social work and serves on the Faculty Senate executive committee. He has worked published in numerous textbooks, supplements and other publications.

He earned his Ph.D. in economics from Syracuse University in New York and also holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Other award recipients were:

·         Caleb Mills Distinguished Teaching Award: Melissa Nail, professor in the department of teaching and learning, and Steven Stofferahn, associate professor of history

·         Theodore Dreiser Distinguished Research and Creativity Award: Jim Speer, professor of geography and geology, and Jeffery Stone, assistant professor of environmental geosciences
