College of Arts and Science Announces 2009 Teaching Awards


Twelve members of New York University’s Faculty of Arts and Science have been honored as winners of teaching awards, which are given annually by NYU’s College of Arts and Science (CAS). They will be announced to the CAS community at the College’s Baccalaureate Ceremony held at Radio City Music Hall on May 12. The Golden Dozen awards celebrate those faculty members who have demonstrated excellence in teaching and service to undergraduates.

Recipients were chosen based on student and faculty recommendations. The selection process starts with nominations made online by colleagues and students. NYU’s academic departments are then asked to endorse the candidacy of the nominees. Once endorsed, the candidates submit a teaching philosophy statement and their CVs. All of this information, along with undergraduate course evaluations, is reviewed by a CAS Faculty Committee that selects the recipients in each of the three categories: the Golden Dozen for tenure track/tenured faculty, clinical professors, and full-time language lecturers; the Outstanding Teaching Awards for adjunct professors, graduate instructors, and part-time lecturers; and the Outstanding Teaching Assistant Awards.

This year’s Golden Dozen winners are: John Archer (Professor of English); Bruce Bueno de Mesquita (Silver Professor of Politics); Todd Disotell (Professor of Anthropology); Emmanuelle Ertel (Assistant Professor of French); Paul Fleming (Associate Professor of Germanic Languages and Literature); John Halpin (Clinical Associate Professor of Chemistry); Mohammad Khorrami (Clinical Assistant Professor of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies); Peter Meineck (Clinical Assistant Professor of Cla 500
