University of Arkansas Little Rock Scholar Recognized for Her Contributions to Engineering Communication

Joyce Carter, chair of the department of rhetoric and writing at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, has been selected to receive the Alfred N. Goldsmith Award for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Communication from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Professional Communication Society. Dr. Carter will receive the award during the IEEE International Professional Communication Conference in Limerick, Ireland, in July.

The Goldsmith Award was established in 1975. Dr. Goldsmith held a lifetime appointment as an associate professor of electrical engineering at City College of New York, where he was the first director of research. He was a co-founder of the Institute of Radio Engineers in 1912.

“It’s very exciting and a real honor to receive this award,” Carter said. “I’ve won small awards before, but this award is from an international body that recognizes a lifetime of work and a career of visionary service to the field.”

Professor Carter joined the faculty at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2016. Earlier, she served as a professor at Texas Tech University.

Dr. Carter is a graduate of the University of Southern California, where she majored in English. She holds an MBA and a Ph.D. in rhetoric from the University of Texas at Austin.
