Katherine Borland receives Ratner Award

Dr. Borland receives Ratner Award

It is with great pleasure that we announce that Dr. Katherine Borland has been named one of the inaugural Ratner Teaching Award winners! The Deans of Arts and Humanities, Comparative Studies Department Chair Barry Shank, and former Center for Folklore Studies Director Dorothy Noyes visited Borland during class this morning to confer this prestigious award.

The Ratner Award recognizes faculty for developing new courses, original materials, and/or innovative methods and venues for delivery, as well as for making a difference in students’ educations, lives, and careers. Candidates were selected based on their creative teaching and for exemplary records of engaging, motivating, and inspiring students. The award comes with a one-time $10,000 payment to the faculty member and the establishment of a $10,000 teaching support account for the winner to draw on. The Ratners are expected to present a plaque to Dr. Borland at the Arts and Humanities Faculty Recognition event on Tuesday, Oct. 28 from 4:00-6:00PM at the Blackwell Inn.

Great work, Katey!
