Dietrich, professor of Statistics/Measurement, was named the 2017 PhD faculty award recipient. She teaches research design and statistics and supports PhD students with their dissertation research.

Karen Hande, DNP, ANP-BC

Hande, associate professor of Nursing, was selected to receive the DNP program faculty award. She teaches the application of evidence-based practice and the execution of students’ DNP projects, which demonstrate the synthesis of students’ doctoral education scholarship. Hande coordinates the program’s integrative application course series, a sequence of courses designed to advance the students into practicing scholars.
