Cumberlands Honors Chuck Dupier with Service Award


Williamsburg, Ky. – On Thursday, April 18th, University of the Cumberlands (UC) honored Mr. Chuck Dupier, Registrar, with the 2013 Service Award for full-time administrators and non-teaching staff members at the 21st annual Faculty-Staff Dinner.

Each year, based on recommendations by students, faculty and staff members, UC honors one staff member with the award.

Dupier began his career at UC in the 90’s at the Cumberland Lodge, followed by Institutional Research, and special projects for UC President Dr. James H. Taylor. Currently, he is the Registrar at Cumberlands and continually looks to provide easier access to pertinent forms and information.

A person was quoted as saying, “He is the best example of what every person needs to be or strives for in their life. He has become a pillar of his Church and community. His dedication to family, his faith, and his work are evident daily.”

In his spare time, Dupier often plays piano for others to sing or for funerals whether he knows the person or not. He is a wizard with computers running his Church’s electronics board and is an accomplished carpenter. He is also an avid fisherman and takes to the lakes any time he can.

The Service Award is given annually to a full-time staff person who shows an understanding of the philosophy and mission of the university through interaction with students, other staff and faculty members, university visitors, and the larger world beyond the campus.

Located in Williamsburg, Ky., University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in more than 40 major fields of study; nine pre-professional programs; twelve graduate degrees, including two doctorate, two specialist and eight master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
