John Creed - Advising AwardOn April 28th, Interim Provost and Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Brian McGee presented Dr. John Creed with the 2014-2015 Distinguished Advising Award. The College-wide Distinguished Advising Award honors those faculty members and academic staff who have demonstrated a sustained dedication to students in the area of academic advising.

Dr. Gibbs Knotts, Chair of the Political Science Department, noted that Dr. Creed “provides a level of personal attention that is likely unmatched at institutions of our size.  He spends countless hours working one-on-one with his advisees.”  Dr. Knotts also appreciates Dr. Creed’s willingness to share his knowledge about advising with his colleagues.  According to Dr. Knotts, “He is always available to help with particularly challenging advising questions and works hard to help students and faculty find solutions to problems that inevitably arise.  Dr. Creed even created a five-page ‘Advising Tip Sheet’ that has become an instrumental document for our department.”

Dr. Creed has taught in the Department of Political Science since 1992.  He offers courses predominantly in international relations and comparative politics, including the Politics of the Middle East; the International Relations of the Middle East; International Environmental Politics; International Relations Theory; the U.S. in World Affairs; the American Foreign Policy Process; World Politics and Introduction to Comparative Analysis.

Dr. Creed’s current research focuses on the politics of biodiversity conservation in the Middle East, with a particular emphasis on Jordan and its efforts to establish a network of nature reserves that incorporate participation from the surrounding rural communities.

In addition to the Distinguished Advising Award, Dr. Creed has been recognized as the ExCEL Outstanding Faculty of the Year in Humanities and Social Sciences and the Higdon Leadership Center’s Faculty Student Group Advisor of the Year.
