2016 Jack Jensen Award for Excellence in Teaching
I'm incredibly honored to have been the 2016 recipient of the Jack Jensen Award for Excellence in Teaching, Colby-Sawyer College’s highest teaching award. It recognizes the fundamental importance of the quality of teaching in determining the value of the educational process, supports faculty in their pursuit of excellence in teaching and leadership in the campus community, and celebrates those who dedicate themselves to the teaching profession. Presented annually to a faculty member who has made a distinct, positive difference in the college’s academic climate, the award honors the late Professor Jack Jensen, who, through his dedication to teaching, inspired faculty and students alike.
