Hogan Book Award

The Hogan Book Award
Dr. Kelly Hogan, Senior STEM lecturer and the Director of Instructional Innovation in the College of Arts & Sciences, and her husband, Dr. Brian Hogan,  Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry are advocates for first generation college student success. Both Drs. Hogan are several times published and the recipients of many teaching and community service awards.  Both have also been mentors in various mentoring programs including the Carolina Covenant, the Carolina Scholars, and the Colonel Robinson STEM Scholars. The two created The Hogan Book Award for First Generation College Students in STEM in partnership with Pearson Education.

 

The award provides the textbook to the introductory science courses to a selected group of first generation college students. As textbooks in STEM disciplines can be among the most expensive, the Drs. Hogan created the award to reduce this financial barrier to persistence in STEM fields for first generation college students.

The inaugural recipients of the award received their textbook and certificate at a lunch on Friday, January 9, 2015. Award recipients were asked to write a letter of support to other first generation college students interested in studying STEM disciplines.
