Dr. Robert Crosnoe Awarded Dads' Association Centennial Teaching Fellowship, and Nominated by Services for Students with Disabilities
Posted: August 23, 2011
Dr. Robert Crosnoe has been selected to hold a 2011-2012 Dads' Association Centennial Teaching Fellowship, an honor that recognizes outstanding work with undergraduate students. Dads' Association Centennial Teaching Fellowships were established by the University of Texas System Board of Regents in 1983 with funds raised by the UT Austin Dads' Association and matching funds under the Centennial Teachers and Scholars Program. Selection of faculty members appointed as Dads' Association Centennial Teaching Fellows is based upon recommendations from the deans of colleges and schools offering courses for freshman undergraduates.
In addition, Dr. Crosnoe has been nominated by students at The University of Texas at Austin as a faculty member who has offered support and guidance to students with disabilities. Services for Students with Disabilities recently asked students to nominate faculty and staff members who have positively contributed to their academic endeavors at The University. Dr. Crosnoe is recognized for his efforts to create an inclusive environment for students across campus.
Dr. Crosnoe received his Ph.D. in Sociology from Stanford University and then completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Carolina Population Center and the Center for Developmental Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His main research area is the life course and human development; specifically, the connections among children’ and adolescents’ health, psychosocial development, and educational trajectories and how these connections contribute to population-level inequalities (e.g., race, social class, immigration).
The Department of Sociology is proud of Dr. Crosnoe and his focus on all students' potential to succeed, and looks forward to continuing to provide a challenging and supportive learning environment for students at The University.
