SAS Awards for Distinguished Contributions to Undergraduate Teaching

The 2019 SAS Awards for Distinguished Contributions to Undergraduate Education were announced at a May 8 ceremony at Rutgers Hillel. Each year, awards for Distinguished Contributions to Undergraduate Education are given to professors and teaching assistants in the School of Arts and Sciences to recognize their outstanding achievements in and beyond the classroom, their engagement with their students and pedagogic communities, and their overall commitment to the undergraduate education mission. Each year, the theme that inevitably shines through in each nomination is the students’ understanding that these instructors “genuinely want us to learn.” We are indebted to them and grateful for their untiring support of our students and stewardship of the future.
