Gloria Townsend, Professor of Computer Science at DePauw University, was honored at the Indiana University School of Informatics Awards Dinner on April 12th, 2012. Gloria holds three degrees from Indiana University including one from what is now known as the School of Informatics. She was presented with the school’s Career Achievement Award at the dinner.
In presenting Gloria with the award, Dean Bobby Schnabel explained that the Career Achievement Award is the highest award given by the School of Informatics. The Dean noted Professor Gloria Townsend “has had a career that has been very important to the State of Indiana” and went on to explain that she is “a real presence in women in computing and has made a big impact in that field at DePauw, across the state in statewide women in computing events, and nationally”. The Dean reminisced that he had known about Gloria’s national work even before he arrived at Indiana University five years ago. Congratulations to Gloria!
