Promoting Intellectual Engagement Award

LeaRN Program

Congratulations 2016 Award Recipients!

The Promoting Intellectual Engagement (PIE) Award honors instructors who inspire excitement, inquiry, and autonomy in first-year courses.  Recipients of the PIE Award are nominated on-line by sophomore students, and then selected by a committee based on thoughtfulness and volume of student nominations.  Student's descriptions of nominees reveal the heart of excellence in lower-division instruction, courses that comprise the foundation of students' college experience and the crucial seed of intellectual self-awareness.

  The PIE Award is co-sponsored by LeaRN, Ellbogen CTL, Residence Life & Dining, and Center for Advising and Career Services.
