The UT community is invited to attend the Distinguished University Lecturer Program and Reception.
“To honor and celebrate the many contributions of our lecturers to the teaching mission of The University of Toledo, the week of April 17 has been designated as Lecturer Appreciation Week,” said Dr. Jamie Barlowe, interim vice provost for faculty affairs and dean of the College of Arts and Letters.
The week will include a recognition event in Doermann Theater Thursday, April 20, from 4 to 6 p.m. followed by a reception outside the theater. At that event, President Sharon L. Gaber will give welcome remarks, and Provost Andrew Hsu will recognize faculty members who will receive the new title of Distinguished University Lecturer.
“Those named Distinguished University Lecturer have earned recognition and distinction as educators, advancing student learning, facilitating and supporting student success, and demonstrating a commitment to the University’s educational mission,” Barlowe said.
The duration of the appointment as a Distinguished University Lecturer is unlimited, and the title may be retained after a lecturer has retired from UT, she added.
Faculty eligible for the designation are assistant, associate and senior lecturers.
