France Bélanger Wins the Association for Information Systems Fellow Award

France Bélanger, University Distinguished Professor, R.B. Pamplin Professor, and Tom and Daisy Byrd Senior Faculty Fellow in the Pamplin College of Business at Virginia Tech, recently received the Association for Information Systems Fellow Award at the International Conference on Information Systems in Copenhagen.

The recognition honors individuals who have impacted the information systems discipline in terms of research, teaching, and service and was given to Dr. Bélanger “in recognition of all of the valuable contributions she has made to AIS and to the field of information systems during her distinguished career,” according to the chair of the AIS Fellow Award Committee.

“I am extremely honored to be recognized for my lifelong contributions to my field by the very senior and accomplished scholars involved in the selection committee,” said Professor Bélanger. “It is, of course, the result of a lot of hard work, but a substantial part of my successes must be attributed to the fantastic people I have collaborated with over the years.”

Among her current projects, Bélanger has launched Voices of Privacy, a web initiative intended to raise general awareness of information privacy issues and help inform and educate individuals so they can make more informed choices about what to, or not, to share.

Professor Belanger joined the Virginia Tech faculty in 1994 and was promoted to associate professor in 2002 and full professor in 2008. She is a graduate of McGill University in Montreal and holds a Ph.D. in information systems from the University of South Florida in Tampa.
