Scupin Receives Scholar of Year Award

October 15, 2007

Ray Scupin, a professor in the Science Division at Lindenwood University, has received the school’s Scholar of the Year Award for 2007. The award, which recognizes the highest level of professional scholarship on the Lindenwood faculty, was presented by President James D. Evans at the school’s faculty meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

Scupin has a bachelor’s in history, anthropology and Asian studies from UCLA and a master’s and doctorate in anthropology from University of California Santa Barbara. He has taught anthropology and sociology at Lindenwood since 1981, prior to which he taught at UC Santa Barbara and Northern Kentucky University.

He has also done major anthropological research on a number of trips to Thailand, where he studied the Muslim minority, and has done ethnographic research on Native American Indians in California. Since 1992, a number of his textbooks have been published by Prentice Hall Press.

“I am truly honored to have received the President’s Scholar of the Year award,” Scupin said. “To be nominated, supported and respected by my peers in the Lindenwood community is something I will always cherish.”

Nominations for the award are made from within the various academic departments in the university; the recipient is chosen by the Deans’ Council from two to four finalists selected by the university Faculty Planning and Development Committee.
