Each year students elected to Phi Beta Kappa nominate their favorite professors for our annual Teaching Award. The recipient is selected by the Phi Beta Kappa officers.
Each year student nominations include a short statement and the names and email addresses of 6 other students who support the nomination are all that is required. The other students are not required to be in Phi Beta Kappa.
This is a heartfelt way to recognize a professor who has made an impact on you and influenced your intellectual and human development. There is a small cash prize, a public recognition, and a beautiful plaque.
Congratulations to 2020 Excellence in Teaching awardee C. Shawn Green (Psychology). Zachary Demko (2020 PBK inductee) submitted the nomination.
“It is clear to me that Professor Green deserves this award due to his innovative application of empirically-tested teaching methods and his strong dedication to cultivating talented individuals within his research lab.”
