Dallas W. Bauman III, Assistant Vice President for Campus Residences at Stony Brook University, has been honored by the American College Personnel Association (ACPA), College Student Educators International — the primary professional association for educators in the field of student affairs — as a Diamond Honoree for his substantial contributions to the fields of higher education and student affairs.
The Diamond Honoree Program, established by the ACPA Educational Leadership Foundation in 1999, is both a recognition program and a fundraising activity. The funds raised on behalf of the honorees are used for ACPA and Foundation activities in keeping with the Association’s purposes and strategic goals. Since its inception in 1999 the program has generated more than $100,000.
In addition to the ACPA honors, Western Illinois University has recognized Bauman with the Lawrence Miltenberger Award for Excellence in Housing and Dining, the highest honor given by the Division of Student Services at that university, which recognizes a person who has made an outstanding contribution to the field of housing and dining services.
This award is presented to an individual who has served a minimum of 10 years in the profession and has contributed significantly to the development of the housing and dining profession, and has made significant contributions to the nominee’s institution or business. The recipient holds active membership in and has made significant contributions to regional housing organizations, ACUHO-I and/or other professional organizations; has made contributions to the housing profession through program presentations, publications and/or grant writing and other related work; and has supported and promoted the housing profession through mentoring and positive role modeling for other professionals.
Bauman, who is completing his 30th year of service to Stony Brook this year, was also awarded the SUNYRLHA Beth Purk Distinguished Service Award in October 2012. The Beth Purk Award is given to a SUNY Residence Life and Housing Professional who has made significant and ongoing contributions to the field of higher education and in particular to the SUNY Residence Life and Housing profession. Bauman won the Purk Award in 2006.
