I would like to highlight several of the wonderful awards that were received in this quarter. UT celebrated eighteen faculty awardees including a new National Academy of Engineering member (Yilu Liu), an American Council of Learned Societies fellow (Megan Bryson), a National Humanities Center fellow (Shellen Wu), four Fulbright fellows (Sarah Eldridge, Micah Beck, Carol Tenopir, and Songning Zhang), a Guggenheim fellow (John Powers), and two NEH Summer Stipend awards (Katy Chiles, Hilary Havens).

UT faculty were awarded a total of eight 2016 NSF CAREER grants: Wei Gao, Jon Hathaway, Donatello Materassi, Lucas Platter, Andrew Steiner, Kai Sun, Cong Trinh, and Christopher Wright. This is a record number of CAREER awards for UT, and I thank all the staff who directly and indirectly assisted in preparing winning submissions.

As always I invite your feedback on anything you would like to discuss involving the Office of Research and Engagement, your research concerns and interests, and aspirations you may have for future research activities at UT.
