Steve Green Named Sociologist Of The Year

12:00AM / Thursday, July 06, 2006

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts Vice-president of Academic Affairs Steve Green has been named New England Sociologist of the Year.
North Adams-Steve Green, vice president of academic affairs at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, was recently named as New England Sociologist of the Year by the New England Sociological Association.

Green was nominated for the honor by NESA Executive Director Michael Fraleigh. NESA Awards Committee Chairman and Co-President Dan Klotz of Bryant University in Rhode Island will present Green with the award at the organization's fall conference this November at Keene State College in New Hampshire.

Klotz said the New England Sociology of the Year Award is given to the sociologist who epitomizes excellence not only at his or her own
institution, but in the entire New England region. That excellence may be demonstrated in superior scholarship, community service or exemplary commitment to the field of sociology.

"Steve Green has been the heart and soul of the New England Sociological Association for greater than three decades," Klotz said. "You cannot think of NESA without thinking of Steve Green, and this is a fitting tribute to a career focused upon thinking, teaching, student development and enrichment, and improving the field through mentorship and collegiality."

Green was elected to its executive board in 1984, where he has served in a wide variety of positions, including as an executive council member, the chairman of several committees and as president.

Green said that the Association consists of a wonderful group of
sociologists who believe in the art of teaching and in talking about and working toward better teaching.

"I'm very gratified that the organization - one that I've devoted a great deal of time and energy to - chose me for this award," Green said. "I know almost all of the people who have received it in the past, and they're a wonderful group of sociologists who do very important work in sociology. It's truly an honor to be among them."

Previous recipients of the Award include Alexander Liazos of Regis
College, MCLA's Maynard S. Seider, Sharlene Hesse-Biber of Boston College and Greg Lee Carter of Bryant University.

"All of us, I think, who are members of the New England Sociological
Association, feel strongly that our work as sociologists is the teaching of our students and I accept this honor as their recognition of my interest in teaching and in serving an organization that believes so strongly in this important work," Green said.

Founded in 1970, the New England Sociological Association is committed to the continuing improvement of sociological research, teaching and practice.
