BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Dr. Charlie Hailey, Professor of Architecture in the School of Architecture, has been named winner of the 2020 SEC Faculty Achievement Award for the University of Florida, the SEC announced Friday, April 3.
Dr. Hailey's research focuses on how environments are made, investigating material culture and cultural landscapes to discover links between human agency, settlement patterns and ecology. He recently received the University of Florida's oldest and highest faculty honor when he was named the Teacher/Scholar of the Year in 2019, recognizing his commitment to helping students make connections between their design studies and the humanistic contexts of that work.
"Dr. Charlie Hailey is an original and broad-thinking scholar who is highly regarded at UF for his expansive and experience-focused teaching approach," said Dr. Joe Glover, Provost and Senior Vice President at the University of Florida. "Whether in research, writing or lecturing, he connects architecture to the humanities, ecology and other fields, readily crossing disciplinary, conceptual and methodological boundaries."
To receive an SEC achievement award the faculty member must have achieved the rank of full professor; have a record of extraordinary teaching, particularly at the undergraduate level; and have a record of research that is recognized nationally and/or internationally. University winners will receive a $5,000 honorarium from the SEC and will become their campus nominee for the SEC Professor of the Year Award, which will be announced in late April.
