R&C 2015: Conferring of Teaching Prizes and the Baldwin Medal
Three faculty members were honored with the Binswanger Prize for Excellence in Teaching: Michael Calter, professor of chemistry, David Schorr, professor of art, and Gina Athena Ulysses, associate professor of anthropology. These prizes, made possible by gifts from the family of the late Frank G. Binswanger Sr. Hon. ’85, underscore Wesleyan’s commitment to its scholar-teachers, who are responsible for the university’s distinctive approach to liberal arts education. In addition, Alan Dachs ’70, Hon. ’07, P’98 was awarded the Raymond E. Baldwin Medal, the highest honor presented by Wesleyan’s alumni body for extraordinary service to Wesleyan or for careers or other activity which have contributed significantly to the public good.
