Greg Bell, assistant professor in the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business, was named the 2014 Haggar Fellow during the University of Dallas King/Haggar and Haggerty Teaching Excellence Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, Jan. 21.

Hendrickson, who teaches the legendarily difficult Organic Chemistry course sequence, joined UD in 1979. In addition to maintaining an active research program that has generated nearly $800,000 in grant support, he mentors many undergraduates who present findings at professional association meetings and co-author peer-reviewed journal articles. He also directs the intensive O'Hara Chemical Sciences Institute, a summer program for freshman science majors.

"He is for us all a model of integrity, humility, and dedication," said Provost William Berry.

The King Fellow Award goes to a faculty member who has taught in a full-time capacity for more than eight years. The recipient of what is considered to be the highest faculty honor must have also made a significant contribution to the university through scholarly work, excellence in teaching and as an exemplary colleague.

Bell, whose areas of expertise are sustainability, organizational leadership and international business, was recognized for his dedication to teaching both graduate and undergraduate students and his assistance coordinating the final phases of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) Accreditation process.

"Dr. Bell is a committed teacher, a prolific publisher, dedicated to his profession and the university and a respected colleague," said Blake Frank, associate professor in the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business.

The Michael A. Haggar Fellow Award is given to an outstanding junior faculty member who has served the university full-time for no more than eight years.
