Edward J. Cronin Award

…getting all the lovely words just right

The Edward J. Cronin Award is presented annually to the student in the Program of Liberal Studies who has submitted the outstanding piece of writing in that year. This award honors Dr. Edward J. Cronin whose tireless efforts for good writing distinguished his more than three decades of teaching from the inception of the Program. Alumni, faculty, students, and friends established this award in April, 1982, at the time of Dr. Cronin’s retirement.
