Adriane Seiffert won the Harriet S. Gilliam Award for Excellence in Teaching by a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer
The Gilliam Award was established in 1995 in memory of Harriet S. Gilliam, B.A., 1966. The award recognizes a lecturer or senior lecturer who has achieved excellence in teaching undergraduates. Candidates may be either full- or part-time and must have taught at least five semesters. Nominations are reviewed and ranked by student members of Phi Beta Kappa, after which the dean selects a winner. The award winner receives a cash award and an engraved Mississippi Julep pewter cup. Adriane is the second winner of this award from our Department (Leslie Smith won it back in 1995).
Alex Maier won the Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching
Established in 1985 by the College of Arts and Science in collaboration with the Graduate School, this award recognizes a graduate faculty member in the College of Arts and Science for outstanding classroom teaching. The Committee on Graduate Education chooses award recipients from among departmental nominees upon evaluation of student testimonials, course evaluations, and the faculty member’s own statement of teaching philosophy. Each winner receives a cash award and an engraved Mississippi Julep pewter cup. Alex is the third recipient of this award by a faculty member of our Department (Steve Hollon and Andy Tomarken are previous winners).
