Susan D. Collins


For students of Susan Collins, political science and Honors College assistant professor, it was no contest. Collins deserved and was awarded a 2005 Provost’s Core Teaching Excellence Award.

“For all their necessary commitment to professional training, students still long for the humanizing education that is the university’s great tradition,” Collins wrote in her personal statement.

Sarah Neal, her former teaching assistant, said that her mentor has equipped her with tools to effectively teach her own classes.

In an evaluation form, one student sums it up best, “Professor Collins rules.”

The award consists of $5,000 and a trophy. Nominees must be tenured/tenure-track faculty demonstrating excellence in teaching a core curriculum course.
