Regents’ Awards Extol Work of 4 Instructors

Aug. 21, 2009

Four UT Dallas professors have been selected as the inaugural recipients of the UT System Board of Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Awards.

Dr. Denise Paquette Boots, Dr. Anthony Champagne, Dr. Michael Kilgard and Dr. Paul Stanford join 73 faculty members from system’s nine academic institutions in sharing $2 million in awards for doing an exemplary job in college classrooms.

The awards, which range from $15,000 to $30,000 depending on level of experience, are believed to be among the highest in the country for rewarding outstanding undergraduate faculty performance and innovation.

The awards program was established by the regents as the latest in a series of UT System-launched initiatives aimed at fostering innovative approaches to teaching, research and commercialization endeavors at all UT System institutions.
