MDC Announces 2012 Endowed Teaching Chairs
I am very pleased to announce the recipients of the 2012 Endowed Teaching Chairs. The recognition of our outstanding faculty via this program is among the College's most valued traditions. It is made possible by the generosity of our donors, who also recognize the program’s value, and by the ongoing work of the MDC Foundation.
As much as any program at the College, the Endowed Teaching Chair reflects our identity and our aspiration to excellence as an institution. On a day-to-day basis, these professors accomplish the heart of MDC’s mission.
Please join me in congratulating the following eight professors, who will join the list of 294 endowed chair recipients honored since the program's inception in 1992:
Freedom Tower Endowed Teaching Chair
Manuel Medina Endowed Teaching Chair
Jeanne-Marie and Dante Fascell Endowed Teaching Chair
M. Anthony Burns/Ryder System, Inc. Endowed Teaching Chair
Espirito Santo Bank Endowed Teaching Chair
Dr. Germán Muñoz Endowed Teaching Chair
Joan K. Stout, R.N. Endowed Teaching Chair in Nursing
Juan A. Galan, Jr. Endowed Teaching Chair in Entrepreneurship
I would like to offer special thanks to Professor John Adkins, who served as the chair of the Endowed Teaching Chair Committee, and to all the committee members who devoted so much time in reviewing faculty submissions and portfolios.
Thank you and congratulations to this year's Endowed Teaching Chairs.
