Dr. Jeffrey Fawcett, professor of marketing at Grace College and dean of the School of Business, was recently honored with the Chewning Award, the Christian Business Faculty Association’s highest honor.
Fawcett has been actively involved in the CBFA for many years and previously taught at Cedarville University. He came to Grace College in 2011, bringing 24 years of experience in Christian higher education. Prior to beginning his teaching career, he worked as a consultant in Washington, D.C. on contracts with Naval Sea Systems Command and the Federal Aviation Administration.
The Chewning Award was established by the Christian Business Faculty Association to perpetuate the passion and commitment of integrating personal faith and business as modeled by Dr. Richard C. Chewning. The award is bestowed no more than once annually to reinforce and encourage deserving individuals and to make their successes known among colleagues, students, and the world at large.
Criteria for the award include a love for the Word of God and Christ-likeness in their scholarship and/or in the practice of teaching or serving in business, and the integration of Christian faith in learning demonstrated through discovery, integration, application and/or teaching.
“I am humbled to have received the award,” said Fawcett. “I feel very blessed for the opportunity to work with CBFA and Grace College, where I can follow my passion to integrate God’s truth with the discipline of business. To God be all the glory!”
