Six faculty members from The University of Texas at Austin have been selected to receive the President's Associates Teaching Excellence Award for 2009-2010 for demonstrating a consistent level of excellence in teaching.
Vice Provost Gretchen Ritter told the recipients in a letter informing them of their award that their commitment and outstanding performance, as well as their high academic standards, "not only instruct but also inspire" the students.
The recipients include: Assistant Professor Timothy Loving, Department of Human Development and Family Sciences, College of Natural Sciences; Assistant Professor James H.
