Daryl Smith, professor of education and psychology at Claremont Graduate University (CGU), has received the Howard R. Bowen Distinguished Career Award from the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE).
The award is presented annually to someone whose professional life has been devoted in substantial part to the study of higher education and whose career has significantly advanced the field through extraordinary scholarship, leadership, and service.
Smith received the award on Nov. 16 at the ASHE conference in Las Vegas. The association is a scholarly society with about 2,000 members dedicated to higher education as a field of study.
Smith's distinguished career as an educator and university leader spans more than 40 years.
She has worked as a full time faculty member at CGU since 1986, and before that served as assistant dean of students at Pomona College and dean of students and vice president for planning and research at Scripps College. She's been a leading researcher on diversity in higher education, evaluation and organizational change, college governance issues, women in academe, women's colleges, institutional research, student affairs, and classroom teaching.
Smith is the third CGU professor to receive ASHE's Distinguished Career Award.
The award is named for former CGU professor Howard R. Bowen, who was the first to receive it in 1985. Emeritus Prof. Jack H. Schuster received it in 2007.
