Seven professors from the College of Arts and Science were among the 2018-19 winners of the University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union (USSU) Teaching Excellence Awards.
The USSU awards program recognizes professors who demonstrate teaching excellence at the University of Saskatchewan (USask). Founded in 1909, the USSU is the representative body for all USask undergraduate students.
“An excellent teacher not only gives us access to knowledge but also gives us the tools with which to turn that knowledge into wisdom,” the USSU’s website states. “Students evaluate teachers and their environment in a number of ways; three important areas include enthusiasm, organization, and fairness of evaluation. The culmination of these aspects leads to an environment where students feel free to explore, critique, grow, and become leaders.”
The 2018-19 College of Arts and Science winners include:
- Jon Bath (Department of Art and Art History)
- Alison Norlen (Department of Art and Art History)
- Martin Gaal (Department of Political Studies)
- Laura Wright (Department of Sociology)
- Adrian Clark (Department of Chemistry)
- Scott Thompson (Department of Sociology)

Other recipients include Barbara von Tigerstrom (College of Law), Noelle Rohatinsky (College of Nursing) and Tania Duclos (Department of Language, Literature, and Cultural Studies, St. Thomas More College).
