Twenty-five faculty members and teaching assistants have been named winners of Carolina’s 2020 University Teaching Awards. The recipients will be recognized during halftime of the men’s basketball game against Wake Forest University on March 3 and at a luncheon in April.

The University Committee on Teaching Awards, which oversees the selection process, encouraged students to nominate deserving faculty and graduate teaching assistants for the awards. The committee sought nominations with specific examples that display the nominees’ care for students, mentorship or effective use of classroom methods.

“Our award winners have the opportunity to change student lives every day,” said Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Robert A. Blouin. “These recipients recognize and accept the incredible responsibility to prepare our students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers and inspire them to take on the most important challenges facing society. The winners deserve this important recognition and our thanks for their dedication.”
