Three from the UK College of Education were recognized during the 2017 UK Awards Ceremony held on campus in April.
Sy Bridenbaugh was one of three UK teaching assistants to receive the 2017 UK Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award. He is a doctoral student in the Department of Educational Policy Studies and Evaluation.
Dr. Kenneth Tyler, a professor, and doctoral student Della Mosley, both from the Department of Educational, School, and Counseling Psychology, were recipients of the inaugural 2017 Inclusive Excellence Award, given in partnership with the UK Office for Institutional Diversity.
The awards were presented by UK Provost Tim Tracy.
“On behalf of the UK family, I extend my deepest gratitude to the award recipients for their outstanding efforts and commitment to academic excellence,” Tracy said.
The Outstanding Teaching Faculty and Teaching Assistant Awards annually recognize faculty and graduate teaching assistants who demonstrate special dedication and outstanding performance in the classroom or laboratory. Recipients were selected via nomination and reviewed by a selection committee based in the Office for Faculty Advancement.
The Inclusive Excellence Awards recognize the accomplishments of individuals and academic or professional units that demonstrate a sustained commitment to diversity and inclusion through campus and community involvement and exemplary leadership.
