Rachel Christopherson (Biology; minor in Spanish) and Autumn Dunsmore (Economics and Finance), who are Co-Presidents of the University Honors Student Association (UHSA), announced Friday that Dr. Don Dingledine is the winner of the 2018 Outstanding Teaching Award.

Dingledine, Associate Professor in the English Department, began teaching Honors classes in 2006, including the Honors Core (HNRS 175: Honors Seminar, HNRS 275: Culture Connection, and HNRS 475: Honors Senior Seminar) as well as Honors composition and literature classes (ENG 110: The Civil War and ENG 229: Honors African American Literature). He has also served as a member of the University Honors Council, the governing body of The Honors College, since 2010.


Christopherson and Dunsmore read excerpts from students’ endorsements and presented Dingledine with the Outstanding Teaching Award, his fourth, at the Spring 2019 Honors Graduation Ceremony on Friday, May 17, at the Culver Family Welcome Center.


The UHSA Executive Board would like to thank the many Honors students who nominated their professors, composed endorsements, and took part in the voting process. They also congratulate this year’s two other finalists, Mr. Courtney Bauder of the Social Justice Program and Mr. Craig Clifford of the Art Department, who were nominated for HNRS 175 and Art 115, respectively.
