Professor Robert Babcock has received a Tanner Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. Each year, five faculty members from across the university receive the award, established to “recognize excellence in inspirational teaching of undergraduate students, particularly first- and second-year students.” The University Committee on Teaching Awards encourages students to nominate faculty, and chooses recipients who “promote the value of undergraduate teaching by example, demonstrate concern for students through interaction and approachability inside and outside the classroom, create meaningful learning experiences and maintain high expectations of their students.” For a full list of winners, see here.
