Shulman Endowed Excellence in Teaching Award
The Shulman Endowed Excellence in Teaching Award
The Shulman Endowed Excellence in Teaching Award was established by a UCR Business alumnus and his wife, to honor Professor David Shulman, an associate professor of management and economics at the school. It is designated to reward exemplary business professors who embody the fulfillment of learning through their excellence and achievements in teaching as demonstrated by Professor Shulman.
The Shulman Endowed Excellence in Teaching Award is a student-voted teaching award recognizing these outstanding faculty. Annually, $5,000 will be awarded to one faculty member, based on student voting.
In judging the effectiveness of teaching, students should consider the professor’s capacity to awaken in students an awareness of the subject and its relationship to other fields of knowledge, invoke curiosity and encourage high standards and creativity, and create an academic environment that is open and encouraging to all students.
