The Department of Classics congratulates Professor Rabun Taylor on winning a Liberal Arts Council Endowed Teaching Award.
This award is given annually to four professors in the College of Liberal Arts for demonstrating outstanding teaching and a commitment to their students and the College. The Liberal Arts Council solicits and reviews student nominations and selects recipients on the basis of character, classroom interactions, and personal achievements.
Professor Taylor, a specialist in Roman archaeology, teaches many courses in that area, including Roman Art and Society (TC 302), Technology in the Greek and Roman World (UGS 303), Introduction to Roman Archaeology (CC 307D), Classical Archaeology: Methods and Approaches (CC 317), Pompeii (CC 340), and Topography and Monuments of Ancient Rome (CC 340). He also serves as the Department's Undergraduate Advisor.
The Liberal Arts Council serves as the official voice for students in the College of Liberal Arts. The Council represents students in academic affairs as a voting member of the Senate of College Councils and acts as a liaison between students and administration. The Council also offers students opportunities for community service, promotes student and faculty interaction, and prepares students for the professional world.
