|Theresa Neil Memorial Research Award|
The Theresa Neil Memorial Research Fund provides financial support for summer sessions research. It is funded by a consortium consisting of the North American Association of Summer Sessions (NAASS), the Western Association of Summer Session Administrators (WASSA), and the Association of University Summer Sessions (AUSS).
The award, formerly called the Summer Session Research Consortium Award, honors the memory of Theresa Ann Neil, a nearly 20-year member of the staff at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Born in 1948, Theresa passed away on June 25, 1994 after an accident that took her life and that of her husband, D.C. Neil. She served as Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Administration and Director of Continuing Education and Extension at Duluth.
