Voting Now Open for Fourth Annual Haggerty Teaching Excellence Awards

Students and alumni can now vote to honor professors for their hard work and inspiring teaching with the 2014 Haggerty Teaching Excellence Award. Awards of $5,000 will be presented to four to five faculty members in conjunction with the King Haggar Awards on Jan. 21, 2014.

Voting for the awards is taking place currently and ends on Oct. 31 at 11:59 p.m. All current students and alumni are invited to vote for one faculty member.

"The Haggerty Teaching Award is the most important honor I have received here at the university, because it centers on students, and the classroom, and the incalculable effects of learning," said Professor of English Eileen Gregory, who received the award in 2013. "There are many honors for one's academic work and for one's servicebut this one matters most. It concerns the heart of the matterwhat we love and why we love it."

At least two awards will go to faculty who teach undergraduates, one to a faculty member who teaches College of Business graduate students, and one to a faculty member who teaches Braniff or School of Ministry students.

Recipients of the 2013 award included Gregory, Scott Crider, associate professor of English; Bruce Evans, professor of management; Susan Hanssen, associate professor of history; and Richard Olenick, professor of physics.

The Haggerty family, after whom both the Science Center and the Arts Village are named, has a long and generous history of supporting the university. Pat Haggerty, Jr., is an alumnus of Constantin (BA '62) and of the College of Business (MBA '73). He is also a member of the Board of Trustees, and he and the Foundation are continuing the family's legacy of stewardship with this gift.
