James Murdock to Receive Distinguished Service Award
Society of College and University Planning honors Business School assistant dean.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. James L. Murdock, assistant dean for finance and planning at the University of Michigan Business School, will receive the 2004 Distinguished Service Award from the Society of College and University Planning (SCUP) on July 18 at the organization's 39th annual conference in Toronto, Canada.
Murdock, who has worked at the University since 1975, served as an administrator at the U-M Flint campus for 11 years before moving to the Business School.
A member of SCUP since 1987, Murdock served as treasurer and on the Board of Directors from 1994 to 1997. He has been a presenter at several regional and national conferences and was the conference chair for SCUP-35, the annual International Conference and Expo held in Denver, Colo., in 2000. He has served on SCUP's finance and marketing committees and chaired the task force that developed a strategic plan implementation process for SCUP's board and central staff.
"Jim Murdock has been the person SCUP turned to when we wanted to be sure things would get done thoroughly, without a fuss and in a timely fashion," says former SCUP President Cal Audrain. "It was my good fortune, during my year as president, that Jim accepted the job of conference chair for SCUP-35. I knew that he would provide a quality conference and he did."
