The School of Education's Associated Doctoral Student in Education (ADSE) is a student-administered organization dedicated to ensuring that all students' interests, concerns, comments, and questions are heard and addressed in a representative manner. The goal of the organization is to foster community among graduate students.
ADSE presents a yearly award to one PhD student who has provided exemplary service to the program, the School, and fellow students. Christopher Stillwell is the 2017 recipient of the ADSE Service Award, presented by current president Masha Jones and vice president Robert Kalinowski.
Presentation Text Delivered by Robert Kalinowski and Masha Jones
It is our pleasure to present the Associated Doctoral Students in Education service award. ADSE was founded in 2012 as a way to coordinate communication among students, staff, and faculty. The service award is designed to honor a student whose work often goes unnoticed. A lot happens within these walls every day, and much of this work takes place behind the scenes. This award goes to someone who has selflessly given to the School, and we would like to acknowledge his time and energy by presenting Christopher Stillwell with the ADSE service award for 2017.
Christopher has shown great leadership and initiative in responding to the ongoing shift in our political and social climate. He has led the organization of our "Trump Talk" events, reaching out to the UCI community and members of the greater Orange County community to discuss relevant topics that have implications for our changing educational landscape. He has also worked hard to mobilize other PhD students at SoE to participate as advocates for the educational community.
The Associated Doctoral Students in Education thanks Christopher for all of his hard work and presents him the 2017 ADSE service award.
