Shawn Bauldry

Please join me in congratulating Shawn Bauldry, associate professor and director of graduate studies in sociology, for being named a University Faculty Scholar.

The University Faculty Scholars Program recognizes outstanding faculty members – either tenured associate or full professors – who are on an accelerated path for academic distinction. Faculty Scholars are appointed for a non-renewable, five-year term and receive an annual $10,000 discretionary allocation.

In two years at Purdue, Shawn has distinguished himself through research, studying how people leverage socioeconomic resources to ensure their health and well-being, as well as in the areas of teaching and service. Head of sociology Linda Renzulli credits him for teaching some of the most important sociology courses on campus, and also for taking over the graduate studies program in July and quickly improving its outreach.

Shawn was recently nominated for the Southern Sociological Society’s Junior Scholar Award, as well. Like the University Faculty Scholar Award, the Junior Scholar Award honors faculty members who demonstrate career promise and are making significant contributions to their fields.

Congratulations, Dr. Bauldry!
