Professor Ariana Traill, head of the Department of the Classics, was one of four faculty members honored with the Campus Awards for Excellence in Faculty Leadership at the Celebration of Academic Service and Leadership event held at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center on May 11.

Traill was honored for her outstanding leadership and vision by an executive officer in a campus unit. She has worked tirelessly and energetically toward replenishing her department’s diminished resources at every level: budgetary, faculty recruiting (including increasing its gender and underrepresented ratios), curricular development, undergraduate and graduate education, mentoring, evaluation, outreach and fundraising.


Given by the Office of the Provost, the three annual awards recognize faculty members who distinguish themselves with their vision of the future and their effort to enable and promote others in shaping that future.

“This is a well-deserved recognition,” said Jean-Philippe Mathy, Director of the School of Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics. “Ariana has been an exemplary department Head.”
