Submitted by Emma R Hinchliffe on

Big congratulations are due to Professor of Medieval Europe, Charity Urbanski, who was just announced as the co-winner of the 2019 Honors Excellence in Teaching Award.

This student nominated award recognizes Professors for their inspiring courses and willingness to connect with students. This is a well deserved award for a Professor who always delights in helping students find their voice, shows consistent enthusiasm for teaching, and is constantly inspiring our next generation of historians. 

Undergraduate students who recommended Urbanski for this honor described her as a Professor who "delights in helping every student find their unique voice," and "encourages students to pursue projects that are personally meaningful to them."

Reflecting on this honor, Urbanski recalled how “teaching the Honors students was a wonderful experience. It was a pleasure to work with such a talented, enthusiastic, and dedicated group of students." She added that she particularly enjoyed "helping them navigate the research process, and watching them grow as scholars and develop their own unique voices. I'm extremely proud of what they accomplished and it’s deeply gratifying to know that they enjoyed the experience as much as I did."

We hope you will join us in congratulating this outstanding member of the Department of History who is making such an impact on students in our community.
