Annual Faculty Award
The AGLSP Annual Faculty Award is offered each year by the Association to honor an outstanding faculty member who teaches in a Full Member program. The award was established by the Association’s Board of Directors in 1991 to recognize outstanding faculty who exemplify the qualities of interdisciplinary, liberal teaching and who have participated significantly in teaching or advising students and/or have actively participated in other faculty service in a Graduate Liberal Studies program.
The 2013 AFA was awarded to Professor Paula Marks of St. Edward’s University. Professor Marks brings her scholarship into the classroom in an accessible manner, and encourages active, student-focused learning. Her teaching for her program — which includes an innovative Liberal Studies introductory course on Time, as well as courses on American place, frontier and spirituality — has been notably interdisciplinary.
Nominations for the 2014 award are now closed.
