The UW honors its top faculty, TAs, volunteers and staff.

FOR MORE THAN FOUR DECADES, the University of Washington has honored its best professors for bringing knowledge to new generations. This year the tradition continues as the UW bestows upon seven faculty its Distinguished Teaching Award. The group includes a drama historian who gave up the stage for the classroom, a doctor who balances her teaching loads with a 20-year practice at Harborview, and an anthropologist who is so popular, one-quarter of all UW undergraduates take his course. In addition to teachers, the UW is also honoring TAs, public servants and staff this month. All will be recognized at the UW Recognition Reception, held at 3 p.m. Thursday, June 13 in Meany Hall and open to the public. Faculty and others will also be honored during the June 15 commencement exercises in Husky Stadium. What follows is a series of mini-profiles of teaching faculty, followed by brief listings of other award winners. Because some recipients were chosen late, the September Columns will highlight the President's Medalist and the Brotman Diversity Award winners.
