Sally Dear-Healey, adjunct lecturer in the Department of Sociology, received the 2010 Robert Maynard Hutchins (RMH) Award from The Drake Group (TDG), a consortium of faculty, staff and others concerned with academic integrity with regard to intercollegiate athletics. Created in 2004, the RMH Award is given annually to someone who has shown courage in standing up for academic integrity in the face of commercialized college sport. The award is named after the former president of the University of Chicago who is best known for reforming undergraduate education and eliminating the football program at the university for being a distraction to the campus. Dear-Healey was honored at The RMH Award Luncheon, sponsored by TDG, on April 23 in Chapel Hill, N.C., where the College Sport Research Institute (CSRI) conference was also being held.
