The center serves as an important vehicle in helping the University to achieve its educational mission, consistent with its three core values: high quality academic programs, a student-oriented environment and a sense of community.
"I've always considered it to be an honor to teach," said Kathleen Simione, associate professor of accounting and a past award recipient. "I put so much of myself into my teaching because I just love it."
Rebecca Abbott, professor of communications and a past recipient, found her true professional calling in the classroom. "Once I started teaching, I began to appreciate the excitement of sharing with someone else and the excitement of someone else wanting to take your ideas and use them. It's a fantastic feeling," Abbott said.
"I always knew I wanted to do something that would help others feel good about their lives. It's very gratifying to have found something that I love so much."
