The College is pleased to announce the Arthur "Red" Motley Exemplary Teaching Award recipients for the 2012-2013 academic year. The award 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 Arthur "Red" Motley award winners:
-Michael Goldman, Department of Sociology
-Kelley Harness, School of Music
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. More details from the Dean's Office will be forthcoming.
