|Reception set to honor Tami Carmichael, ND CASE/Carnegie Professor of the Year|
The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) have named Tami Carmichael, director of humanities and integrated studies, the 2008 North Dakota Professor of the Year. The United States Professors of the Year program salutes the most outstanding undergraduate instructors in the country, those who excel in teaching and positively influence the lives and careers of students. It is the only national program to recognize excellence in undergraduate teaching and mentoring. CASE and the Carnegie Foundation have been partners in offering Professors of the Year since 1981. Former UND winners are: Thomas Owens, chemical engineering (2000); John Reid, geology and geological engineering (1996); and Daniel Sheridan, English (1995).
Dr. Carmichael was nominated by the provost’s office and selected from nearly 300 top professors throughout the country. This year, there are winners in 44 states, the District of Columbia and Guam. All of the 2008 U.S. Professors of the Year were honored at a luncheon and awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. in November.
Everyone is welcome to this reception in honor of Dr. Carmichael and in recognition of the importance of excellence in undergraduate teaching. Please come Wednesday, Dec. 17, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the J. Lloyd Stone Alumni Center and offer your congratulations.
