The recipients of the Dean's Research Awards are:
Toie Ann Warner, Social Work -- LIVES (Linking Individuals with Volunteers, Education, and Support). My research has taught me the value of social capital and the potential social capital has to improve the lives of others. I plan on continuing through the process of Social intervention Research to further develop and test my project to evaluate the positive impact of the program. I plan on achieving my PHD in Social Work and utilizing the research developed in this project in my future education. I am truly passionate about this topic and am hoping to continue in this field.

Pamela Temple, History -- Deconstruction of a Company Town: An Oral History Project. By conducting oral histories with former residents of Camden, I am adding to the scholarly understanding of company-owned timber towns. After graduation, I plan to work in an archive where I can continue conducting oral histories.
