The Distinguished Political Science Alumni Award
Robert F. Glover (B.A., 1982) was the inaugural recipient of the Distinguished Political Science Alumni Award. The award was established to honor graduates who have distinguished themselves in their careers, particularly in the areas of public service, education and politics. Mr. Glover is shown above (left) receiving the award at the Political Science Department’s Student Awards and Recognition Banquet in April 2008. For more information on Mr. Glover’s commitment as an EIU alumnus, please see the link in the section on “An Involved Alumnus”.
