2020 Outstanding Teachers – April 24, 2020

Dear colleagues,

This has been a year unlike any other in our history, and our resilient faculty have overcome the challenges of the pandemic by continuing to teach our students through new technology and providing them with the same nurturing relationships they have come to expect. I am pleased to share with you TU’s 2020 Outstanding Teachers:

  • Associate Professor of Law Matt Lamkin
  • Collins Professor of Computer Information Systems Lori Leonard
  • Stanley Rutland Professor of American History Andrew Wood
The university first bestowed the distinguished award for outstanding teaching in 1980. Honorees may receive the honor only once in a lifetime, and only three awards are made each year. It is especially meaningful because the nomination must be initiated by a student, and the recipients are selected by colleagues on the Faculty Affairs Committee of the Faculty Senate. Each honoree receives a medal and a stipend.Each of this year’s honorees bring an exceptional level of student support and disciplinary dedication to their roles as teachers and mentors. Read more about their years of experience and what students had to say about these three outstanding educators on the TU website.

Please join me in congratulating Matt, Lori and Drew on this well-deserved honor!

Tracy Manly
Acting Provost
