Dr. Sharon Chubbuck Honored With Excellence in Teaching Award

On May 2, 2019, Marquette University's 61st Annual Père Marquette Dinner took place in the Monaghan Ballroom of the AMU. Four faculty members, including Dr. Sharon Chubbuck, were honored with the university’s highest teaching honor, Teaching Excellence Awards, and one faculty member received the Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion Award.

Described as a “teacher’s teacher,” Dr. Sharon Chubbuck followed in her mother and grandmother’s footsteps when she became a high school teacher, saying she felt called to serve in that vocation.

Dr. Chubbuck joined the Marquette faculty 18 years ago, and said she feels lucky to get paid to do something she loves. Her students describe her as empathetic, inspiring and transformational, but Dr. Chubbuck insists “It is my students who have been the ones who pushed me to be a better teacher and a better person.”
