I’d like to congratulate the newest members of UT’s Academy of Distinguished Teachers.
- Richard Corsi, Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering, Cockrell School of Engineering
- Mechele Dickerson, School of Law
- John Markert, Department of Physics, College of Natural Sciences
The academy was created in 1995 to recognize tenured faculty members who throughout their careers have maintained significant contributions to education, particularly at the undergraduate level. Academy members receive the title of “Distinguished Teaching Professor” and a $7,500 increase in annual academic salary, effective the following academic year.
Moreover, the academy serves as an advisory group to the executive vice president and provost on teaching excellence and will provide institutional leadership and guidance for the distinctive undergraduate experience available in our research university environment.
I’m proud of professors Corsi, Dickerson, and Markert. They’re the best of the best.
