Janie Fouke, Provost

Join me in welcoming to the Academy of Distinguished Teaching Scholars its five newest members:

*  Dr. Linda Behar-Horenstein, Professor, Department of Educational Administration & Policy, College of Education;

*  Dr. James W. Lynch, Professor, Department of Hematology/Oncology, College of Medicine;

*  Dr. Gregory Ulmer, Professor, Department of English, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences;

*  Dr. Rick Rudd, (former) Associate Professor, Department of Argicultural Education & Communication IFAS; and

*  Dr. Paul Doering, Distinguished Service Professor, College of Pharmacy.

These outstanding educators have demonstrated sustained innovation and commitment to teaching throughout their careers. They also have articulated their vision for promoting excellence across campus to the faculty committee that reviewed nominees to the Academy. To assist them in advancing their vision for excellence and faculty enhancement at the University, this year’s Academy teacher-scholar awardees will serve for three years on the advisory board for Faculty Development. In this capacity they will assist the Associate Provost in developing programs and workshops that enhance the professional careers and experiences of faculty. As teaching and learning advocates, Academy members also promote a university-wide discourse on key issues surrounding the development of teaching at the University.

After completing their three-year terms on the advisory board, members will retain the title of Distinguished Teaching Scholar and continue to be a part of the Academy. Congratulations!
