Teaching Awards

In 2017, I was awarded the Kenyon College Trustee Teaching Excellence Award (Junior Award). Faculty and students nominate candidates. The president, provost, and associate provosts then review the letters of nomination. They then select three finalists from each of the senior and junior faculty pools and forward their recommendations to the Curriculum and Faculty Committee of the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees then makes the final determination.

In 2009, I was awarded Northwestern University's Weinberg College Outstanding Graduate Teacher Award and the R. Barry Farrell Prize for Teaching Excellence. Every year, the College gives the award to three teaching assistants. A student-faculty Committee on Teaching Awards is responsible for evaluating nominations from departments and the Student Advisory Board. They also recommend candidates to the dean. The R. Barry Farrell Prize for Teaching Excellence is given in memory of one of the Department of Political Science's best teachers. Faculty members select a recipient.
