The high quality and commitment of the department’s faculty continues to be recognized with Professor Paul Harvey’s receipt of the prestigious UCCS Chancellor’s Award. Winners of the award must demonstrate excellence in two of three of the primary selection criteria (teaching, research, and service).
Previously, in 2006, Harvey received the Faculty Award for Excellence in Research from the University of Colorado. In 2008, Harvey received the Outstanding Teaching Award from UCCS. In 2009, Harvey received the designation of Presidential Teaching Scholar at the University of Colorado, a system-wide award recognizing specially designated scholar/teachers throughout the University of Colorado system.
Through his ceaseless commitment to a vibrant research agenda, Harvey continues to produce and contribute to scholarship on religion in America. Harvey’s narrative history survey Through the Storm, Through the Night: A History of African American Christianity (Rowman & Littlefield publishers) was published in 2011, along with a co-edited reference work The Columbia Guide to Religion in American History. In 2012, he published Moses, Jesus and the Trickster in the Evangelical South (University of Georgia Press) and will publish The Color of Christ: The Son of God and the Saga of Race in American History (co-authored with Edward J. Blum, University of North Carolina Press).
