Charlene Hudson, Political Science Professor on the Gainesville campus, has been awarded the UNG Teaching Excellence Award for Non-Tenure-Track Faculty.

This award recognizes non-tenure-track faculty who have consistently demonstrated outstanding teaching, which includes all activities in which faculty members engage to facilitate learning by undergraduate, professional, or graduate students. The nominee’s qualifications might include activities designed to advance the quality and practice of teaching and learning, to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and/or global and multicultural understanding. The nominee’s qualifications might include effective teaching strategies to enhance student learning, such as active learning, student portfolios, and classroom assessment techniques. His or her commitment to students may also be apparent in enriching academic activities outside of the classroom.

Dr. Craig Greathouse, Associate Department Head of Political Science & International Affairs (PSIA) nominated Charlene for the award with the support of Dr. Dlynn Armstrong, Department Head of PSIA and letters from multiple PSIA faculty members and students. The winner is selected by the UNG Center for Teaching and Learning (CTLL) awards review committee.

Charlene teaches political science on the Gainesville campus during the fall and spring semesters and the Cumming campus during the summer semester.

Charlene will be recognized for the award at the virtual 2020 Fall Convocation in front of the UNG community on August 10, 2020.
