Peter Holland, McMeel Professor of Shakespeare Studies, will be presented with the 2012 Sheedy Excellence in Teaching Award. He will follow the presentation of the award with an acceptance speech.
The Sheedy Award is presented annually to an outstanding teacher in the College of Arts and Letters. It was founded in 1970 in honor of Rev. Charles E. Sheedy, C.S.C., who served as dean of the College from 1951–69, and acknowledges a faculty member who has sustained excellence in research and instruction over a wide range of courses. This individual must also motivate and enrich students using innovative and creative teaching methods and influence teaching and learning within the department, College, and University.
