This award was made possible by the Litrownik Distinguished Alumni Scholar Endowment fund. Thank you to retired JDP Faculty member and Professor Emeritus Dr. Al Litrownik for his donation to support a “distinguished alumnus of the JDP. The identified scholar will be brought to the campus, receive an honorarium, and meet with current doctoral students in the program to discuss professional issues, including their career trajectories and professional interests.”
