Elias receives Chancellor's Distinguished Service Award


Congrats to professor (and alum) Thistle Elias (BCHS '12) on winning the 2019 award - a major honor recognizing continuing work with Bridging the Gaps, a premier service-learning opportunity for Pitt students.

Presented at the annual Honors Convocation ceremony in February, the award "recognizes... efforts [that] far exceed the traditional duties expected of a faculty member and showcases the extraordinary impact that you have had in your own department and in the University." In addition to the public honor, the award includes a cash prize of $2,000 and a grant of $3,000 to support the faculty member’s public service activities.
