Congratulations to Professor David Afsah-Mohallatee and Dr. Tom Appleton, named 2015-17 Foundation Professors. Eastern’s highest honor for teaching excellence, the EKU Foundation Professorship recognizes those who demonstrate outstanding abilities in the three primary roles of a faculty member: teaching, service, and research.
EKU has entered the season for recognizing accomplishments, and EKU's students have shown appreciation for our faculty. On April 23, the Office of First Year Courses recognized Outstanding Instructors in First-Year Courses for their dedication and passion for first-year student success. Each honoree was nominated by a first-year student in his/her Student Success Seminar for being an impactful, inspiring, student-focused instructor during the Fall 2014 semester. On April 29, the annual ceremony for the Golden Apple Awards was held, recognizing campus-resident-nominated EKU instructors for their excellence in teaching and encouragement of student success. And Thursday was the 2014-2015 Critical Thinking Teacher of the Year Awards. This year 475 students nominated instructors who have made an impact on the students’ learning and lives. A total of 277 instructors were nominated for Critical Thinking Teacher of the Year. Congratulations to all of our award winners and nominees. (See the list of nominees for these esteemed awards.)
