Lynn Wins 2011 Emory Scholar/Teacher Award

Congratulations to David Lynn, recipient of the 2011 Emory Scholar/Teacher Award! The award is conferred during Emory’s annual commencement exercises. From the Provost:

The University Scholar/Teacher Award, presented annually at Commencement, is a faculty honor supported by the United Methodist Church’s General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.

The selection criteria for the award include:

  • Demonstration of exceptional teaching
  • Recognized concern for students and colleagues, and sensitivity to the mission of the church-related university
  • A record of significant contributions to the scholarly life of the university
  • Commitment to high standards of professional and personal life

In support of Emory’s belief that “the intellectual and social energy that results from diversity is a primary asset of the university,” special consideration should be given to nominees that reflect this commitment to inclusiveness.
