The College is pleased to announce the Arthur "Red" Motley Exemplary Teaching Award recipients for the 2011-2012
is sponsored by a gift from the family and friends of the College of Liberal
Arts alumnus Arthur Motley and alumni of the College.
The purpose of the award is to recognize
faculty who are outstanding teachers of graduate and undergraduate students in
the College of Liberal Arts. It acknowledges tenured or tenure-track 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
members provide a model to undergraduate and graduate students through their
own research and teaching, and leave an impression by their efforts which
alumni recall with appreciation and esteem. In sum, the recipient of this award
will have enhanced the lives of University of Minnesota students. Please
join us in congratulating the following

The award winners will be recognized and invited to make a
brief speech on the importance of great teaching at a special event in the
coming academic year.
