Dr. Clare Muhoro (MTAWA Board member) was the recipient of the 2018 University System of Maryland’s Board of Regents’ Award for Public Service. The awards are the highest honor presented by the Board to exemplary faculty members. The awards honor excellence in the following four categories: teaching; research, scholarship and creative activity; public service; and mentoring. Institutional faculty nominating committees make recommendations to the institutional presidents, who review nominations and supporting material and forward recommendations to USM Chancellor Robert L. Caret. The Regents Faculty Review Committee makes the final recommendations. Dr. Muhoro received the award for her work on enhancing science and technology in developing countries. Dr. Muhoro works extensively with the United States Agency for International Development and has traveled to Africa and Asia in hands-on efforts to support U.S. programs and policies regarding scientific collaboration as a tool to promote development. She also served as an American Association for the Advancement of Science fellow in diplomacy, security, and development. She has organized and/or moderated numerous programs and symposia around the world. She balances these public service obligations with a full-time teaching, research and administrative load within the Department of Chemistry at Towson University.
