Prof. Wynn receives teaching award
Posted: November 14, 2006
The Eyes of Texas Award, given each semester to only ten UT faculty and staff members, recognizes "honorees who have made an outstanding contribution to student life at the University of Texas." Anonymous student members of the Eyes of Texas, an organization dedicated to "unselfish service" of the university, submit nominations for the award.
Professor Wynn interacts closely with students as a Normandy Scholar Program faculty member. At the end of each spring semester, Professor Wynn travels to Europe to tour World War II-related sites with four other faculty members and about 20 Normandy scholars.
"It is enormously satisfying to have my passion for helping students grapple with the troubling issues of 20th century Russian history recognized," Professor Wynn says. "I hope this award also draws attention to all the other faculty and staff who make the Normandy Scholar Program possible. I feel privileged to be part of a program that has such a profound impact on students' lives."
