1 min read

Michael Shinagel, dean of the Harvard University Extension School, has won the 2009 Frandson Award for Literature, given annually by the University Continuing Education Association (UCEA), for his book “The Gates Unbarred: A History of University Extension at Harvard, 1910-2009.”

The Frandson Award for Literature recognizes the author and publisher of an outstanding work of continuing higher education literature, and is given in memory of Phillip E. Frandson, who served as dean of extension at the University of California, Los Angeles, and as National University Extension Association president (1977-78).

Shinagel will be honored on April 10 at an awards presentation in San Francisco at UCEA’s annual conference.
