Francine Page Excellence in Teaching Award

2016: Nancy Nahra

The 2016 Francine Page Excellence in Teaching Award was presented to Nancy Nahra, a former full-time faculty member who retired in 2011, and who has continued to teach in the Core Division. 
Her nominators described her as "...a genuine scholar and interdisciplinary thinker who exudes a calm and confidence that is rooted in a strong intellectual identity." 
Another described Nahra's scholarly achievements as world-class while suggesting that equally if not more remarkable, is her capacity for "expanding students' spheres of knowledge through the use of original methods of teaching."
Nahra exemplifies dedication to students, excellence in teaching and advising, and service to the broader community. In the words of a nominator, "This faculty member's 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 this person's classes and always tell me how much they feel they learned."
