Identifier: 10/01/01

Scope and Contents

This series consists of printouts of Kudos that appeared online. Kudos was an Office of Public Relations publication which acknowledged those faculty and staff members who had recently or soon would be published; those who recently presented papers, lectures, and exhibitions; and those who  won awards and honors.

Kudos was first published as a permanent section of the Campus News Network (CNN) newsletter in 1990. At some point the section was expanded to an insert included with the CNN newsletter once or twice a month. In April 1998, the Office of Public Relations began publishing Kudos only online and discontinued the page in 2008.  Afterward, the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (CSBS) continued publishing Kudos in its newsletter, but only for faculty and staff in that department.

Special Collections maintains an index to Kudos, which is found in the reading room. Kudos from 1990-March 1998 are indexed with the CNN Kudos from 1998-2008 are included in this box, along with 2009-2016 issues of the CSBS newsletter.
