Every year, the UC San Diego Academic Senate honors a select group of faculty and graduate students, who demonstrate the university’s excellence in teaching, by awarding the Distinguished Teaching Award.  This year, 11 campus scholars received the recognition for their creativity, innovative teaching methods, ability to motivate students and commitment to an extraordinary level of teaching.  At the annual awards ceremony and reception held at the Faculty Club, Chancellor Khosla congratulated each of the honorees, shared a few words from their nominations, and pointed out that UC San Diego is home to world-class faculty at the forefront of their fields who are committed to pushing the boundaries of knowledge and educating next-generation leaders.  Read about this year’s honorees.
