Mayes' teaching award

Assistant Professor Keith Mayes has received a 2010 College of Liberal Arts Arthur "Red" Motley Exemplary Teaching Award. The Motley Award honors faculty who inspire and care, who make themselves approachable, who show an interest in individual students' well-being and in programs for the benefit of students generally, who give of themselves generously in advising, counseling, and directing projects, and who create an active classroom atmosphere. Such faculty provide a model to undergraduate students through their own research and teaching, and leave an impression by their efforts which alumni recall with appreciation and esteem. Dr. Mayes was also recently awarded tenure and promoted to Associate Professor (effective August 2010).
