We are pleased to congratulate Associate Professor Susan Melsop, who received a Ronald and Deborah Ratner Distinguished Teaching Award on Tuesday, November 17th. The surprise presentation was made by Arts and Humanities Divisional Dean Peter Hahn and ASC Vice Dean Susan Williams.
The Ratner Awards recognize faculty for developing new courses, original materials, and/or innovative methods and venues for delivery, as well as for making a difference in students’ educations, lives, and careers. Winners are chosen for creative teaching and for exemplary records of engaging, motivating, and inspiring students. Susan received her award, in part, because of the work she has done over the last several years in the area of service learning.
Each Ratner Award winner receives a sizable cash prize and a $10,000 teaching account to fund future innovation and student impact in the form of curricular development, teaching, or service-learning projects. The awards are specifically for faculty in the Arts and Humanities Division of the College of Arts and Sciences and they have been made available through the generous support of Ronald and Deborah Ratner.
