The Jack Bologna Award

2007-2008 Award for Innovative Teaching

Criteria and Process for Selection of Recipient


Siena Heights University has received a donation to establish an award for five years honoring the innovative teaching style of Professor Emeritus Jack Bologna. The annual faculty development award consists of $500. A plaque bearing the name of the awardee  is to be displayed in a prominent place at the SHU Metro-Detroit site since this is where Professor Bologna did most of his teaching and interacted with students.


Mr. Jack Bologna was a faculty member at Siena Heights for over a decade before health issues caused him to retire from the classroom in the mid-‘90s. According to friends and colleagues, Bologna was proud to be associated with Siena Heights. Bologna was a strategic planner and the SHU Business Department’s “go-to” person for international business and business ethics fundamentals. He has also been recognized as an expert in forensic accounting and computer-based frauds, but those who worked and learned with him remember Jack first and foremost as a dedicated and innovative teacher.  Bologna always held his students in the highest regard. He set the standard, kept current, and always remained open-minded.
