Every year, the College of Liberal Arts recognizes five outstanding members of our teaching faculty with the Teaching Awards. The ceremony, held over everyone’s favorite video conferencing app, looked a little different this year, but the faculty’s accomplishments were as impressive as ever. Perhaps even more so given the extraordinary conditions they had to overcome.
