Eberman receives Distinguished Service Award

April 12, 2018

Lindsey Eberman, associate professor of athletic training, has received the Distinguished Service Award.

The award, which recognizes distinguished service outside the classroom, was presented Thursday during the annual Faculty Recognition Banquet.

"I am very grateful to be recognized as the 2018 Faculty Distinguished Service Award recipient. Upon earning tenure at Indiana State, I thought long and hard about how I wanted to make an impact on the university and my profession, athletic training," Eberman said. "A great mentor of mine has repeatedly said that finding your niche for service is a gift, and I have been so lucky to be able to influence my profession in the area of education and accreditation, as well as an opportunity to share in the governance of our institution through the standing committees of the Faculty Senate. I gain tremendous joy from the interactions I have with others in this service and am proud of the discourse and debate of ideas it has yielded."

Eberman serves as director of the Post-Professional Doctorate in Athletic Training Program. Her expertise is in teaching and learning in the health professions, health care administration and risk mitigation, self-reflective clinical practice and quality improvement and leadership, mentorship and advocacy.

Her accolades include the following: 2017 NATA Emerging Educator Award, the 2017 NATA Professional Development Excellence Award, the 2016 GLATA Outstanding Educator Award, the 2016 Mildred Lemmon Faculty Excellence Award, the 2014 Caleb Mills Distinguished Teacher Award and the 2012 Honors Faculty of the Year.

She has also facilitated more than 100 theses and research projects with various methods of inquiry and published two book chapters, more than 80 article publications and conducted more than 100 international, national, regional and state presentations.

Eberman earned both a doctorate in curriculum and instruction with a specialization in athletic training education and a master's in exercise and sport science from Florida International University and a bachelor's degree in athletic training from Northeastern University.
