Teaching Excellence Awards are the highest honor bestowed upon Marquette University faculty. College faculty received three of the four awards.
Dr. Leah Flack, Associate Professor of English, is also a first-generation college student. "My best moments as a teacher are when I can see students recognize that
meaningful experiences with great literature have changed them.”
Dr. TImothy McMahon, Associate Professor of History, joined the the university in 2001 as a visiting assistant professor. The department chair writes, "He has been one of the most effective and popular teachers in the department throughout those nearly 16 years."
Dr. Martin St. Maurice, Associate Professor of Biological Sciences, is constantly looking for new and more effective
methods of teaching and assessment. He also believes developing
students’ critical thinking skills is more valuable than memorizing
facts and concepts.
Recipients are nominated by their colleagues and students for demonstrating excellence as teacher-scholars.
