Teaching Support

The School of Arts and Sciences takes justifiable pride in the high quality of its instruction at the undergraduate as well as the graduate level. Our faculty members delight in conveying the excitement of academic discovery both at the introductory level, where our students master concepts and critical thinking, and at the more advanced level, where students discover the rewards and rigors of research, whether in archives, in the laboratory, or in the field. Outstanding teachers and advisors in the School are recognized by the Lillian and Joseph Leibner Award, Undergraduate Initiative in Teaching (UNITE) Award, and the Lehrman-Neubauer Prize awarded by seniors to faculty for outstanding teaching and advising.

Recognizing, however, that all teachers can improve their skills and learn new approaches and techniques at any stage of their career, the School and the University offer various resources such as workshops and seminars for faculty members who wish to invigorate their teaching.
