Dr. Marcia Rosal, Professor and Director of FSU Art Therapy Program, ATR-BC, HLM AATA.
Florida State University (FSU) makes an effort to highlight more than intellectual development. As a community of moral discourse, FSU also recognizes the need for the development of the whole person. The FSU Spiritual Life Project fosters students’ search for meaning, purpose, and authenticity in life. Its purpose is also to deepen their self-understanding, broaden their awareness of diverse perspectives and themselves as global citizens, and to develop a sense of commitment to higher ideals.
Transformation Through Teaching is a program established through the Spiritual Life Project to honor full-time faculty that have had an intellectual, inspirational, and integrative impact on the lives of their students. Every year, FSU faculty are nominated by students for their transformational role in their students’ academic life. Winners are selected by FSU’s Spiritual Life Project on the basis of the students’ compelling story.
For 2015, Professor and Art Therapy Program Director Dr. Marcia Rosal was selected as one of the full-time faculty member recipients of the Transformation Through Teaching award!
Dr. Rosal was nominated by doctoral student Ashley Hartman. Astonished and gracious, Dr. Rosal stated, “I am so honored and speechless to have been nominated. I am excited to meet President Thrasher and to have dinner at the the President’s House (November 16, 2015). I will also get to meet the other awardees and I am looking forward to an evening filled with spirited conversation.”
The FSU Department of Art Education would like to congratulate Dr. Rosal, along with the other 2015 award recipients, for their positive impact on the lives of students and service as exceptional faculty members to the university.
