UGS professors receive Regents' awards

Over half of the Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award recipients who teach at UT Austin are involved with Undergraduate Studies. Many of the 17 Undergraduate Studies-affiliated professors teach a first-year Signature Course, lead a Reading Round-Up session, or serve on an interdisciplinary Bridging Disciplines Programs (BDP) faculty panel.

Three of the winners (Dr. James Vick, Dr. Lawrence Speck, and Dr. Linda Henderson) were part of the School of Undergraduate Studies’ inception. Dr. Vick and Dr. Speck have served on the Undergraduate Studies Advisory Committee (UGSAC) since it was formed in 2006.

The honor, given for the first time this year by the Board of Regents to professors within the UT System, is awarded to those who serve undergraduates in an exemplary manner, and as an incentive for others to do the same. The awards also represent the UT System’s commitment to continuous improvement in the quality of the education its faculty provides to its students. The recipient list was announced on August 19, 2009.
