Each year, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill recognizes faculty, staff and students for outstanding teaching at the University Teaching Awards. This year, three talented instructors from the Department of English and Comparative Literature were honored by the University for their work. Professor and Director of Latina/o Studies Dr. Maria DeGuzman won the University Teaching Award for Post-Baccalaureate Instruction, an award first given by the University in 1995 to recognize the important role of post-baccalaureate teaching. Associate Professor and Director of the Office of Distinguished Scholarships Dr. Inger Brodey won the Johnston Teaching Excellence Award in recognition of her excellence in undergraduate teaching. Teaching Fellow Ani Govjian won the Tanner Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching by Graduate Teaching Assistants, the highest honor for graduate student teachers at the University.
“These award-winning scholars exemplify the dedication of Carolina faculty members,” said Provost Bob Blouin. “Their work in the classroom and through their research demonstrates dedication and determination to uphold Carolina’s mission of inspiring the next generation of leaders and guiding them to learn and grow.” The Department of English and Comparative Literature extends our gratitude to these talented instructors—we are fortunate to have them in our midst.
