Professors Bart Elmore and Greg Anderson have both received the Alumni Distinguished Teaching Award, which is the highest accolade awarded for excellence in teaching at Ohio State. The award is only given to ten faculty members each year. Professors are nominated by students, faculty and alumni and recipients are chosen by a committee consisting of students, previous recipients and alumni. Recipients receive a cash award, an increase in base salary and are inducted into the Academy of Teaching. More information about the award is available here.
Gregor Anderson, associate professor of history
"Greg sees teaching as a fundamentally social, interpersonal activity ... his primary aim is to bring past worlds to life," one of Anderson's recommenders wrote, referencing his course on ancient Greek history.
Bartow Elmore, assistant professor of history
"Professor Bartow Elmore is truly one of the best, if not the best, instructors I’ve ever had in my entire educational career," one of Elmore's former students wrote. "He was well prepared, insightful, and stretched my thinking in a way that truly made me a better student and person."
