Professors, teaching assistants, and student advisers at the University of Missouri often receive accolades for their work—from their school or college, from campus administration, or from the university system. Instructors and advisers in the College of Arts and Science consistently say the award that means the most to them is the one from students—the Chalk Awards, presented by the College of Arts and Science Student Council each semester.
The College of Arts and Science Student Council has presented its autumn/fall 2018 Chalk Awards to an economics professor, a faculty adviser, and a student teaching assistant in recognition of their excellence as instructors and advisers. The student council solicits nominations from students for their favorite instructors and advisers, and the council’s executive committee makes the final selections. The student council reviewed a number of nominations, and members had a chance to learn the high regard that students have for their teachers, teaching assistants, and advisers.
The College of Arts and Science Student Council has honored an instructor, an adviser, and a graduate teaching assistant with chalk awards for demonstrating a commitment to student success. Anne-Marie Foley, director of the Office of Service Learning, received the Purple Chalk Teaching Award for excellence as an instructor. Jenny Morton, director of undergraduate advising and curriculum in the Department of History, received the Blue Chalk Advising Award for excellence in advising, and graduate teaching assistant Boaz Bett was honored with the Green Chalk Teaching Award.
