LSC faculty members Susan Brashaw, Psychology, and Kelli Hallsten-Erickson, English, received the Board of Trustees Educator of the Year Award for Excellence in Teaching. It is an honor bestowed upon Minnesota State Colleges and Universities faculty to acknowledge and reward exceptional individual professional accomplishment, and to encourage ongoing excellence in teaching.
“Outstanding faculty at all our colleges and universities make it possible for us to provide an extraordinary education for all Minnesotans,” said Mike Vekich, chair of the Board of Trustees. “The programs our faculty deliver – academic programs, advising, financial aid, registration, residential life, and student affairs, just to name a few – are vital to our ability to serve students and communities in every corner of the state.”
This award is intended to recognize superior teaching at MnSCU colleges and universities. The award proclaims, on behalf of the entire system, the Board of Trustees’ pride in the dedication and accomplishment of faculty in providing instruction that prepares Minnesota’s college and university students for their professional, scholarly and civic lives.
This year 35 outstanding educators from throughout the state were honored during a luncheon at the InterContinental Hotel in downtown St. Paul on April 20.
