Christopher-Rasheem McMillan honored with Collegiate Teaching Award
The University of Iowa College of Liberal Arts and Sciences named seven recipients of the Collegiate Teaching Awards for 2019-2020. The awardees, chosen by the college’s Teaching Awards Committee from nominations by students and colleagues, are Nicole Esposito (Music), Jasper Halekas (Physics and Astronomy), Cris Lira (Spanish and Portuguese), Ambrose Lo (Statistics and Actuarial Science), Christopher-Rasheem McMillan (Dance; Gender, Women's, and Sexuality Studies), Sriram Pemmaraju (Computer Science), and Inara Verzemnieks (English).
Dean Steve Goddard hailed the recipients' dedication to teaching and mentoring.
"Excellent teachers do more than classroom, studio, and laboratory instruction," Goddard said. "They also mentor students, serving as role models who care deeply about the personal, as well as academic, development of their students. These faculty members all meet those high standards, and I am delighted to recognize their impact on our students' education and lives."
