Professor Schumm to Receive Pinnell Award
Professor Joel Schumm, ’98, has been selected to receive IU’s George W. Pinnell Award in 2013 for outstanding service to Indiana University. Recipients are chosen from more than 4,000 faculty members from IU’s eight campuses. The awards are presented at the Celebration of Distinguished Teaching in the spring.
“This is really a great honor and a great tribute to Joel’s endless willingness to do things above and beyond the call of duty,” said Dean Gary Roberts.
W. George Pinnell is a former executive vice president of Indiana University and former president of the IU Foundation, who was known for his stewardship as dean of the School of Business, for leadership in university administration, and for his service to state and national government. The Pinnell award was established in 1988 to recognize faculty members and librarians who have shown exceptional breadth of involvement and depth of commitment in service to the university, to their profession, or to the public.
Professor Schumm, a magna cum laude graduate of the law school, is a clinical professor of law and director of the Judicial Externship Program. He teaches in the appellate clinic, appellate practice, a judicial selection seminar, juvenile justice, and state constitutional law.
