Wittkopp wins teaching award
Monday, August 08, 2011
Professor Patricia Wittkopp has been awarded the 2011 Class of 1923 Memorial Teaching Award for outstanding teaching of undergraduates.
She was selected by her colleagues on the LSA Executive Committee, who select recipients each year from those recommended for promotion from assistant professor to associate professor with tenure and from associate professor to professor who have demonstrated outstanding teaching during their first years on the faculty. According to the letter announcing the award from Professor and Dean of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts Terrance J. McDonald, “While this award recognizes teaching, it is only given to individuals whose achievements and promise auger well for a productive career as a scholar.”
The award consists of a certificate acknowledging achievements in undergraduate teaching and a prize of $5,000, to be officially presented at a forthcoming fall meeting of the faculty.
