Adam Brakel, a master of music candidate in organ, has become director of music and organist at the Cathedral of St. Ignatius Loyola in West Palm Beach, Fla. He is among the youngest music directors ever appointed at a major cathedral.

Mark Edwards, a master of music candidate in guitar, is one of eight musicians to be sponsored by the Maryland State Arts Council as part of its Touring Artist Roster for 2009-2011.

Christopher Rouse, Distinguished Composer in Residence, has been named Composer of the Year for 2009 by Musical America.

School of Education

Michael Rosenberg, professor in the Department of Special Education, will receive the 2008 Teaching Education Division Publication Award at the Council of Exceptional Children convention in Seattle in April. Rosenberg is one of five researchers who will receive the award for an article published in 2007 in Teacher Education and Special Education. His article, "Getting Teachers Where They're Needed Most: The Case for Licensure Reciprocity," assesses whether reciprocity among states is effective in reducing teacher shortages. Reciprocity refers to an agreement among member states to accept another state's teacher preparation and licensing process to the extent they are comparable. Instead, the article argues for other approaches to reduce the teacher shortage including differential pay for those in low-income districts, giving credit to teachers for their years of service when they relocate to a new area and maintaining their pension status. This is the third time Rosenberg has earned the publication award.


School of Medicine

Susan Lehmann, an assistant professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, has been selected as a recipient of the American Psychiatric Association's Nancy C.A. Roeske, M.D., Certificate of Recognition for Excellence in Medical Education. She will receive the award in May at the APA Annual Meeting in San Francisco.

Wolfe Professor in the Department of Community Public Health and an expert in domestic and intimate partner violence, has been selected to join a group of 25 expert ambassadors who will advocate for greater U.S. investment in global health research. They join their peers in Research!America's Paul G. Rogers Society for Global Health Research in a united effort to build a national conversation around the value and importance of greater U.S. investment in research to fight diseases that disproportionately affect the world's poorest nations.
