Fine Arts staff and faculty gathered in the EV Building’s brightly-lit EV Junction space on Wednesday, April 26 for the Faculty of Fine Arts' annual Distinguished Teaching Awards, dedicated to excellence in teaching, both inside and outside the classroom.

Kay Dickinson, professor of film studies was awarded the emerging teaching award (full-time), Francois Morelli, professor of studio arts received the award for full-time established teacher, and Jenny Lin from studio arts received an award for estblished part-time professor. They each took away an award and $1,000 each. Each award was presented by colleagues from their respective departments and accompanied by heartfelt speeches testifying to the winners’ endeavours and achievements.

This year’s selection committee was chaired by Mark Sussman, associate dean of academic affairs. It was made up of former awardees, full and part-time faculty, and a staff member from outside the Fine Arts. Together the committee was responsible for analysing the voluminous dossiers submitted by nominators.
