Dr. Shari Savage receives prestigious Ratner Distinguished Teaching Award
AAEP’s Dr. Shari Savage has been honored with the prestigious 2019 Ronald and Deborah Ratner Distinguished Teaching Award. Beginning in 2014, up to five awards of $20,000 each are presented annually for outstanding teaching by tenured faculty within the twenty-one units of the Division of Arts and Humanities. The Ratner Awards recognize faculty who have exemplary records of engaging, motivating, and inspiring students as well as of making a difference in students’ educations, lives, and careers. Recipients of the award are chosen based on the excellence of their records as well as on their vision of how they will continue to grow as a teacher. Each $20,000 Ratner Award is presented as a $10,000 cash prize plus a $10,000 teaching account. This teaching account is intended to inspire continued excellence in teaching by supporting course design and enhancement, curricular development, experiential learning or other projects that directly impact students. Previous award winners include our own Dr. Richard Fletcher who received the award its inaugural year. Congratulations to Dr. Savage on this well-deserved award!
