Edward Phelps Lyman Professorship

2016 Lyman Award

Associate Professor Warren Baker

The 2016 Lyman Award recipient is Warren Baker of the Division of Communications and Creative Media. In making the presentation, Provost Laurie Quinn shared the words of a nominator, "His passion for student learning and Champlain's mission is awe-inspiring." Another wrote, "I have the utmost regard for my colleague. Students jump at the chance to take his classes and always tell me how much they feel they learned." Another offered this comment on Baker: "As an instructor and an advisor this faculty member is respected, feared and beloved by students - all at the same time."

"Our Lyman winner is an excellent teacher, a role model for our students and an outstanding colleague. We celebrate the wisdom and service shown in his kind words, insightful thinking, and leadership in meaningful events such as the Faculty Professional Development Showcase and the Veteran's Day ceremony we hold each November," Quinn said, adding "He integrates a wicked sense of humor, unflinching integrity, and a genuine caring for student success into all that he does."
