NEWTON, MA (06/07/2022)– Dalton Brown, a Lasell University student from Killingworth, was recognized by the institution for outstanding collaboration in the spring 2022 semester.
Brown received the most peer nominations in their Exercise Science Field Experience I course, taught by Sarah Giasullo, assistant professor of athletic training. Brown also received a Collaboration Award in their Exercise Testing and Prescription Lab course, led by faculty member Timothy Hanway. Recipients of the Collaboration Recognition Award are selected by their peers for exemplifying superior skills in collaboration by sharing ideas and useful information, communicating in a professional manner, and cooperating in a way to ensure success.
The Collaboration Recognition Program at Lasell University was launched in 2021 as an opportunity to acknowledge students not just for their academic performance in a particular course, but for collaborative behaviors that are the key to success in professional environments.
NEWTON, MA (06/07/2022)– Olivia Beckwith, a recent Lasell University graduate from Higganum, completed a Capstone research component project as part of their work in the University’s prestigious Honors Program.
Beckwith created an Honors Capstone component focused on global cultures. The goal of the project was to learn more about other cultures and to help others overcome prejudices. To accomplish this, Beckwith created a list of articles pertaining to the theme and wrote a preface for each one.
The Lasell University Honors program requires students to self-design and complete four research component projects over the course of their studies. The components are a way for students to pursue their passions through creative, individualized, custom investigation of topics of interest.
The Honors Program itself offers an intensive setting through which students focus on collaboration, interdisciplinary thinking, intellectual inquiry, and appreciation for the power of ideas.
