We are pleased to announce that three of the six Yale College prizes awarded in recognition of distinguished undergraduate teaching have gone to faculty members in English Department.
Professor Paul Grimstad has just been selected to receive the 2014 Sarai Ribicoff ‘79 Award for Teaching Excellence in Yale College, one of six Yale College prizes awarded in recognition of distinguished undergraduate teaching. A special committee named by the Dean of Yale College determines the winner of the Sarai Ribicoff ‘79 Prize for the Encouragement of Teaching in Yale College. This prize is to be awarded annually to a non-tenured member of the Yale College faculty in the humanities division “whose instruction and character reflect the qualities of independence, innovation, and originality” that were exemplified by the life and thought of this distinguished alumna.
Professor Margaret Homans has been selected to receive the 2014 Harwood F. Byrnes/Richard B. Sewall Teaching Prize. This prize was established to honor the exceptional support and advising that were given undergraduates like the donor by the persons for whom the prize is named, the Teaching and Learning Committee regards this as an award to be given only to a “towering figure” in undergraduate education: someone who over a long period of service has inspired a great number of students and consistently fostered the learning process both inside and outside the classroom.
Mr. Alfred Guy has just been selected to receive the 2014 Richard H. Brodhead ‘68 Prize for Teaching Excellence by a Non-Ladder Faculty Member, one of six Yale College prizes awarded in recognition of distinguished undergraduate teaching.
