UNL has awarded recipients of two teaching awards -- the 2014 College Distinguished Teaching Awards and the Annis Chaikin Sorensen Award for outstanding teaching in the humanities.
“These faculty have made important contributions to UNL’s teaching community,” said Amy Goodburn, associate vice chancellor. “They inspire their students and their colleagues with their passion and commitment to student learning.”
Carole Levin, professor of history, received the Sorensen Award. Levin joined UNL in 1998 and has served as the Director of the Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program since 2007. Her reputation as a scholar of Elizabethan and early Stuart England is one of the highest in the U.S. and extends internationally. Levin is a proactive mentor of graduate students at UNL and demonstrates her devotion to the success of these students, as well as every student she meets in lectures and conferences.
“As a member of the Teaching Council and a reviewer, I’m inspired by the commitment and contributions of our faculty awardees. These faculty represent the very best of teaching: scholarship, engagement, rigor, passion and sound teaching practice,” said Laurie Bellows, associate dean of graduate studies.
The faculty members will be recognized at Honors Convocation on April 13.
