Clemson University School of Nursing Director Rosanne Pruitt received the Ralph D. Elliott Endowed Award for Outstanding Service to Off-Campus, Distance and Continuing Education at the university’s end-of-semester General Faculty Meeting on December 18.

Interim Provost Nadim Aziz presented Pruitt the award at the meeting, held at the Clemson’s Brooks Center for the Performing Arts.

“[She] has served as an excellent teacher and mentor to continuing education learners throughout her career and has been an advocate for off-campus and distance education, meeting the needs of returning professionals, instrumental in the development of four of the five off-campus programs in the School of Nursing,” Aziz said of Pruitt. “She is also a champion of quality teaching in a web-enhanced and online format, always encouraging faculty to complete opportunities for training to promote teaching effectiveness.”

The purpose of the Ralph D. Elliott Endowed Award is to recognize and honor a Clemson University faculty member, staff member or administrator who has promoted initiatives in the field of credit or non-credit continuing education in a worthy and exemplary manner.

The award was established in 2006 by family and friends of Elliott in honor of his service as Clemson’s Vice Provost for Off-Campus, Distance, and Continuing Education and Professor of Economics.
