Bonnie Mann selected as Williams Fellow for 2013-14
Dr. Bonnie Mann, Associate Professor of Philosophy, has been selected as one of two Williams Fellows for 2013-14. The award recognizes faculty who have “demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to undergraduate education by challenging their students academically, creating an engaged learning environment, striving to improve the learning process, and fostering interdepartmental collaboration.” Williams fellows each receive an award of $5,000 to support their teaching, and their departments each receive an additional $5,000, which is intended to affect the teaching and learning experiences of undergraduate students.
Tom and Carol Williams, formerly of Eugene, established and endowed the fund that bears their names in 1995 to provide financial support for innovative ideas that contribute to the quality of the educational experience for undergraduate students at the University of Oregon. The Williams Fund has awarded more than 75 grants to faculty in various disciplines since 1996.
