Liberal Studies’ Bishop Named Among Top Undergraduate Professors in the U.S. By Princeton Review

April 3, 2012

Kathleen Bishop, an adjunct assistant professor in NYU’s Liberal Studies Program, has been named by the Princeton Review as one of the nation’s best undergraduate teachers. Bishop is profiled in The Best 300 Professors (Random House/Princeton Review), which was released today.

The roster of top teachers features professors in more than 60 fields ranging from Accounting to Neuroscience to Sport Management. A complete list of the professors in the book is accessible here.

The group of 300 professors constitutes less than .02 percent of the roughly 1.8 million post-secondary teachers instructing students at colleges and universities across the U.S. The professors in the book are not ranked, but each professor profiled received high ratings from the students they teach.

“We developed this book as a tribute to the extraordinary dedication of America’s undergraduate college professors and the vitally important role they play in our culture, and our democracy,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s Senior VP/Publisher. “One cannot page through this book without having tremendous respect for the powerful ways they enrich their students’ lives, their colleges, and ultimately our future as a society.”

A former editor at McGraw-Hill, Bishop teaches “Cultural Foundations” in NYU’s Liberal Studies Program (LSP) and, in 2008, received LSP’s Students Teaching Excellence Award. She holds a doctorate in English Literature from NYU.

How the Professors Were Chosen
The Princeton Review and RateMyProfessors.com annually collect data from students at thousands of colleges across the country (and abroad) about their classroom experiences and assessments of their professors. For this project, The Princeton Review culled an initial list using its surveys of hundreds of thousands of students that revealed the colleges at which students highly rated their professors’ teaching ability and accessibility. Data from RateMyProfessors.com identified more than 42,000 professors at those schools that students had rated on its site. Combining this info, a base list of 1,000 professors was formed. After obtaining further input from school administrators and students, as well as from Princeton Review’s surveys of the professors under consideration, the editors of the Princeton Review made the final choices of the professors they profile in the book.
