Business administration professor honored for dedication to students
The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) will present one of its inaugural Dale P. Parnell Distinguished Faculty awards to Ed Foley, a professor of business administration at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
The honor recognizes individuals who make a difference in the classroom and go above and beyond what is required to ensure that students find academic achievement.
Award winners will be recognized during a ceremony at the AACC’s annual convention, April 28-May 1 in Dallas. Foley is among 50 recipients from community college classrooms across the nation.
The names of all honorees will be showcased on a new AACC Faculty Wall of Distinction, which will be on display at the convention.
Foley joined the Tri-C business administration faculty in 1999 after holding high-level management positions with several large, international companies. His professional experience offers students a unique insight into the corporate world.
He also served eight years as president of Tri-C’s chapter of the American Association of University Professors. In that role, Foley helped design and implement programs that helped increase student success rates.
