Megan Fisk, doctoral student, has been awarded one of the inaugural College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Graduate Excellence Awards for 2013-2014. This new award is designed to reward outstanding doctoral and masters students recognized nationally or internationally for their initiative and achievements. "Opportunities such as this draw attention to the critical role graduate students play in forwarding the university's mission of becoming global leaders of discovery and innovation" says Fisk, whose research studies offer insight into more effective suicide prevention in the military.

Carol Comito, academic success specialist, has been named one of the CSW 2014 Outstanding Achievement and Contribution Award Recipients. Each year, the Commission on the Status of Women seeks to honor those individuals, groups, or teams for their outstanding achievements towards advancing the status of women and other underrepresented groups at ASU. Individuals are nominated by colleagues, students, and organizations.
