The International Society of Poets awarded Apollos Bulo a Poet of Merit award for his work titled "A Message to My Africa." Bulo is a staff development associate and coordinator of safety and health at Building Services. More than 5,000 poets from nearly 50 countries gathered in Florida last month for the annual competition.

College of Engineering Dean Stephen Director has received a pair of awards from the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE).

The Benjamin Garver Lamme Award is bestowed upon a distinguished engineering educator for contributions to the art of teaching, contributions to research and technical literature, and achievements that advance the profession of engineering college administration.

The Fellow grade of membership is conferred upon active members of ASEE in recognition of outstanding contributions to engineering or engineering technology education.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently granted nine U-M assistant professors Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Awards in the 2003 competition. The program offers NSF's most prestigious awards for new faculty members to recognize and support early career-development activities of those teacher-scholars who are most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century. CAREER awardees are selected on the basis of creative career-development plans that effectively integrate research and education within the context of the mission of their institution.

U-M's 2003 recipients and their projects are: Achilleas Anastasopoulos, electrical engineering and computer science (EECS), "Exploring the Complexity Limits of Joint Data Detection and Channel Estimation: Exact, Polynomial-Complexity Solutions and Ultra-Fast Approximations"; Jason Flinn, EECS, "Building Intuitive Mobile Systems With Self-Tuning Parameter Translation"; Michael Flynn, EECS, "Improving Analog/Digital Interfaces to CMOS Signal Processing Systems"; Scott Mahlke, EECS, "Complier-Directed Synthesis of Application Specific Processors"; Yaoyun Shi, EECS, "Quantum Complexity and Polynomial Approximations of Boolean Functions"; Bogdan Epureanu, mechanical engineering, "Next-Generation High-Sensitivity Damage Detection and Sensing Based on Enhancing Nonlinear Dynamics and Phase Space Pattern Recognition"; Wei Lu, mechanical engineering, "Programmable Nanoscale Self-Assembly on Solid Surfaces"; Daniel Ferris, kinesiology, "Biomechanics and Energetics of Human Locomotion with Powered Exoskeletons"; and Hendrikus Derksen, mathematics, "Invariant Theory Algorithms and Applications."
