Pamplin Fellows announce 2020 Teacher of the Year

Pamplin Society of Fellows announce the 2020 Teacher of the Year

Each year, the Pamplin Society of Fellows bestows the Teacher of the Year Award to one professor. This award aims to honor undergraduate faculty members that go above and beyond the duties of their position to enrich student learning.

This year the finalists for the award are as follows, in alphabetical order:

Anne Bentley - Associate Professor of Chemistry and Department Chair
David Campion - Dr. Robert B. Pamplin Jr. Associate Professor of History
Dru Donovan - Assistant Professor of Art with Term
Joel Martinez - Associate Professor of Philosophy
Rachel Cole - Associate Professor of English and Department Chair

This award is entirely driven in all aspects by undergraduate students. A call is issued in early March for students at the college to write nomination letters for faculty members that have played a dynamic role in students’ academic lives. These letters are then reviewed by a selection committee comprised entirely of students.

In lieu of a formal ceremony, committee members created a video to make the announcement of the 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year!
