North Carolina Campus Compact, a coalition of 38 public and private colleges and universities, has named an East Carolina University professor as the recipient of the 2013 Robert L. Sigmon Service-Learning Award.
Dr. Rebecca Dumlao, an associate professor in ECU’s School of Communication, is the first from ECU to receive the award. She was honored at the compact’s annual civic and community engagement conference on Feb. 13.
The Sigmon Award recognizes a faculty member for significant contributions to the practice of service-learning, a teaching strategy that links community service to classroom study and reflection. The award is named for North Carolina native Robert Sigmon, who helped pioneer the approach in the 1970s.
