Three Professors Honored by Humanities Seminars Program

Humanities Seminars Program
November 17, 2017

Three professors were honored with the Humanities Seminars Program’s Superior Teaching Award at a recent ceremony. 

Neuroscience Regents' Professor Leslie Tolbert received an award for her course The Ever-Changing Brain. Regents' Professor David Soren from the School of Anthropology and the Department of Religious Studies and Classics was honored for his course 50 Years of Archaeology: A Celebration. Professor Tom Miller, Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, was recognized for his course How We Feel About Politics.

HSP students choose the outstanding teachers, who receive monetary awards. These stipends come from the Humanities Seminars Endowment for Superior Teaching established in 1985 by founders of the program. This year’s awards bring to $263,000 the total payments to the University of Arizona Faculty from this endowment.

Since 1984 the University of Arizona’s Humanities Seminars Program has been offering the highest-quality courses in letters, arts, and sciences designed specifically for adult students. All courses are taught by present and former University of Arizona professors selected for their scholarly accomplishments and exceptional teaching abilities.
