Congratulations goes to CTL Director Dr. Jennifer Maney on receiving the 2023 Staff Excellence Award for Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion! At the Center for Teaching and Learning, we all bear witness to Jen’s thoughtful and careful work when it comes to living the Ignatian spirit and mission at Marquette through equity, inclusion, and belonging. Her work in all academic units and many non-academic units to increase awareness of and take actionable steps toward building inclusive classrooms and fostering faculty communities of belonging exemplifies the heart of cura personalis. On a daily basis, she works her magic in who she is and what she does on this campus, bringing faculty, staff, and students together to live out the Jesuit mission of education. We could not be happier that she has received this fitting recognition. Congratulations, Jen!
Congratulations to Melissa Shew, Senior Faculty Fellow for the CTL and Teaching Associate Professor of Philosophy, on receiving the John P. Raynor, S.J. Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence, the University's highest teaching award for 2023. In her work with students and fellow faculty in and out of the classroom, Melissa plays an instrumental role in Marquette's mission of providing first-rate teaching for our students. "Melissa’s role at the CTL is one of supporting faculty, graduate students, and all instructors by using her experience as an amazing classroom instructor. She is so deserving of this award as an affirmation for her commitment to Marquette, its faculty, its students, and its mission. Congratulations, Melissa!" -Dr. Jennifer Maney, Director of Center for Teaching and Learning
