ECL Professor and Director of Film Studies Dr. Rick Warner was honored with UNC’s prestigious Chapman Family Teaching Award.

Chapman Awards are given to select faculty for the distinguished teaching of undergraduate students. In addition to university-wide recognition, each honoree receives a $30,000 stipend to be used over five years in pursuit of a project to enhance their teaching or research.

Dr. Warner is one of four recipients of the Chapman Award this year, alongside faculty from the Biology, Biomedical Engineering, and Asian and Middle Eastern Studies Departments. In addition, he joins the ranks of the 24 ECL faculty members who have received the award since its inception in 1994.

“My passion for film is a driving force in my life, and I’m endlessly grateful to be able to share that energy in a classroom with such inquisitive, enthusiastic, and observant students who, in all honesty, teach me as much as I teach them,” Dr. Warner said.

“My deepest thanks to those who nominated me for this award,” he added.

Congratulations, Dr. Warner!

Faculty member Rick Warner.
