Sudhir Trivedi receives AAUP academic freedom award

Southern University Faculty Senate Vice President Sudhir Kumar Trivedi, PhD was recently presented the American Association of University Professors' J. Thomas Hemrick Award for his "contributions to academic freedom."

The award is named in honor of the late J. Thomas Hamrick, a professor in the Tulane School of Community Health and Tropical medicine. During AAUP's investigation of the post-Katrina events at Tulane which led to its administration being censured, Dr. Hamrick contributed to the investigation.

Trivedi, a computer science professor, received the award at the AAUP's annual State Conference held April 14 at Tulane.

The award is accompanied by a monetary donation to support chapter development at the recipient's campus AAUP chapter.
