Prof. Wynn receives teaching fellowship
Posted: July 29, 2008
One of the main criteria to be selected is "teaching excellence and outstanding ability to attract and hold the interest of students." Professors must also be exceptional scholars.
The College of Liberal Arts established the Raymond Dickson Centennial Endowed Teaching Fellowship in 1989 to recognize faculty demonstrating outstanding commitment to teaching undergraduate and graduate students. All full-time faculty in the College of Liberal Arts are eligible for this award, which carries a one year fellowship appointment and a $3,000 salary supplement.
"Let me take this opportunity to congratulate you on a well-deserved honor, and thank you for your continued excellence in service to the University's students," wrote Dean Randy Diehl, College of Liberal Arts dean, in his notification letter.
Wynn is also a faculty member of the Normandy Scholar Program on World War II (NSP), a study abroad program administered by the History Dept. The NSP covers the entire spring semester each year with about 20 students from different backgrounds and different majors all taking the same five courses together. The semester culminates in a three-week tour of WWII-related sites in Europe.
