  Outstanding Faculty Recognized With Awards  

Next Award Recipient
Jacqueline Weaver


Jacqueline Weaver, A.A. White Professor of Law, is more than a legal eagle. She also is a recipient of this year’s Teaching Excellence Award.

Weaver’s influence has been felt among would-be lawyers for more than 30 years. During her tenure, she has presided over courses in environmental, energy and natural resource curriculum, and has been a mentor to many. She says her teaching philosophy is simple: be prepared, encourage self-mastery, be passionate and care about students. Many former students, like Art Bieser, stay in touch with her long after graduation ceremonies.

“It’s unusual to encounter a professor whose academic depth is combined with an open-door commitment to make learning a special experience,” Bieser said.

Award recipients receive a $5,000 check and a trophy. Nominees must be tenured/tenure track faculty demonstrating excellence in teaching. Four awards are given.
