In order to provide special recognition to instructors who have been nominated as finalists for the Distinguished Teaching Award four or more times, the Provost’s office has initiated a new teaching award this spring.
Four instructors have been identified to receive the inaugural Provost’s Awards for Sustained Teaching Excellence. They include:
- Todd Arney (Senior Lecturer – CoC)
- Lisa Gordillo (Assistant Professor – VPA)
- Christopher Webster (Professor – CFRES)
- Gordon Parker (Professor – MEEM)
Provost Huntoon, in collaboration with the Deans, initiated this award because “It became clear that we had a group of instructors consistently delivering exceptional instruction to their students over many years, who are worthy of special recognition.”
The award consists of a plaque and $1,000 in additional compensation. Each of the recipients of the new award will continue to be honored on an annual basis as members of Michigan Tech’s Distinguished Teaching Academy, an elite group with an established reputation for excellent teaching.
Please join the Provost and the William G. Jackson Center for Teaching and Learning in congratulating these recipients!
