Congratulations to Qiong Yang for winning the 2022 Class of 1923 Memorial Teaching Award for outstanding teaching of undergraduates
Congratulations to Professor Qiong Yang for being recognized by the College of LSA with the 2022 Class of 1923 Memorial Teaching Award for outstanding teaching of undergraduates. This recognition is awarded each year by the College Executive Committee from among those recommended for promotion from assistant professor to associate professor, with tenure, who have demonstrated outstanding teaching during their first years on the faculty. In the Dean’s letter to Qiong she notes that “While this award recognizes teaching, it is our belief that excellence in teaching goes hand in hand with excellence in research. Thus this award is only given to individuals whose achievements foretell a prolific career as a scholar, teacher, and mentor”. Definitely well chosen words in Qiong’s case.
