A newly streamlined UCF Scroll & Quill Society welcomed four faculty scholars from the College of Health and Public Affairs as members this week.

Professor Eugene A. Paoline III from the Department of Criminal Justice and three faculty members from the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders — Associate Professor Bari Hoffman Ruddy, Professor Jennifer Kent-Walsh and Professor Martine Vanryckeghem — joined the prestigious organization following an Induction Ceremony April 19 at the Burnett Honors College.

The UCF Scroll & Quill Society honors faculty members who have distinguished themselves through “sustained and outstanding achievements in research and/or creative activities” and who have brought “positive national and/or international attention to the institution through these activities.”

Highlighted below are just a few of the accomplishments of COHPA’s inductees.

  • Eugene A. Paoline III, Ph.D., is the UCF lead for a National Institute of Justice grant and a nationally known researcher of police culture who cowrote the book Police Culture — Adopting to the Srains of the Job.
  • Bari Hoffman Ruddy, Ph.D., is the coauthor of two graduate-level textbooks, Voice Disorders and Cases in Head and Neck Cancer, and a research partner with the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute and Ear Nose Throat and Plastic Surgery Associates.
  • Jennifer Kent-Walsh, Ph.D., is the principal investigator for a National Institutes of Health grant, a national expert on augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), and the founder and director of the FAAST Atlantic Region Assistive Technology Demonstration Center at UCF.
  • Martine Vanryckeghem, Ph.D., is a prolific author of publications on fluency disorders, including The Behavior Assessment Battery; a Fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association; and a Board Certified Fluency Specialist.

Previously, UCF had two separate faculty clubs: The Quill, to recognize authored books, and The Scroll, to recognize significant and sustained peer-reviewed publications in national and international journals. Members of these clubs were inducted into the UCF Scroll & Quill Society as Legacy Members.
