Judy Green Wins the NISOD Excellence Award

Judy Green, Coordinator of the General Arts and Science program and Professor of Sociology in the Faculty of HumaniJudyties and Social Sciences, will receive the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) Excellence Award for her exemplary leadership in teaching and learning.

A champion of student success, Judy’s commitment to advising and helping students achieve their goals is truly inspirational. “My teaching philosophy aligns with that of Henri Amiel’s, the Swiss philosopher and poet, who once said that the ‘highest function of the teacher consists not so much in imparting knowledge as in stimulating the pupil in its love and pursuit.’  This philosophy, I believe, creates lifelong learners.  When we support our students’ success as they develop new skills and gain exposure to concepts they did not know before, we invite them to love the pursuit of knowledge.  I am very fortunate to be a part of a Program, School and Faculty that all work to create a safe and supportive learning environment and create learning experiences for students that will allow them to be successful however that success is defined.  Ultimately, as it should be, it is about our students.”

Congratulations to Judy for this well-deserved recognition!
