Since 1970, the University of Washington has honored its best teachers for striving to bring knowledge to the next generation. This year the UW has given its Distinguished Teaching Award to seven faculty on three campuses. In addition, the UW is honoring TAs, public servants and staff this month. All will be recognized at the UW Recognition Reception, held at 3 p.m. Wednesday, June 9 in Meany Hall and open to the public. Faculty and others will also be honored during the June 12 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 awardees were chosen after our deadlines, the September Columns will highlight the President's Medalist and the Brotman Diversity Award winners.
