Instructor Honored with Appreciation Award from Services for Students with Disabilities

At the end of each semester, the staff of the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) office at The University of Texas at Austin asks their students to nominate faculty and staff members who have positively contributed to their academic endeavors at the university.

This spring, Dr. Lindsay Hale, long-time anthropology instructor for University Extension (UEX), was honored with a nomination for one of these SSD Appreciation Awards.

This excerpt from the student’s nomination of Dr. Hale describes how he helps to create an inclusive and inspiring atmosphere in the classroom.

“Dr. Hale is one of those individuals who truly loves his job. He came to class every day like it was the best day of his life. He taught the materials in a way that kept me intrigued even though I have zero interest in anthropology. He encouraged participation in class and took the time to answer any questions we had. He has a charisma about him that makes you want to sit down and talk with him even if you didn’t have a question to ask in the first place.”

Lindsay Hale received his Ph.D. in anthropology from The University of Texas at Austin in 1994, and he began teaching for UEX in 1995.

Dr. Hale regularly teaches anthropology courses for UEX. Check our list of semester courses for current offerings.
