Associate Professor of physics Nate Magee has big plans to spend the next year studying tiny ice crystals that form in high altitude cirrus clouds and how they affect our understanding of climate change. His research just got a boost thanks to the creation of a generous new award.

Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Jacqueline Taylor announced that a $100,000 gift from TCNJ President R. Barbara Gitenstein and her husband, Dr. Donald B. Hart, will make it a bit easier for faculty members to continue their own scholarship outside of the classroom by way of sabbatical.

“The Gitenstein-Hart Sabbatical Prize will be awarded to one full-year sabbatical recipient annually to help support them in their scholarly research,” said Taylor.  “With this gift, we can expand the opportunity for generations of faculty in early or mid-career to engage in the kind of sustained deep scholarship that will profoundly shape not only their careers but the College.”
