Peggy Root Kustritz receives distinguished teaching award
Dr. Margaret (Peggy) Root Kustritz, assistant dean of education, was honored with the Graduate-Professional Teaching Award for outstanding contributions to postbaccalaureate, graduate, and professional education at the University of Minnesota's Distinguished Teaching Awards Ceremony on April 25.
The Distinguished Teaching Award is the University's most prestigious award for excellence in teaching. Peggy was also one of 15 faculty members inducted into the Academy of Distinguished Teachers. As members of the academy, these faculty members provide important leadership to the university community by serving as mentors, advisers, and spokespersons for the University's mission.
“This occasion celebrates the significance and value the University places on excellent teaching,” said Tom Sullivan, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost. “These teachers have gone above and beyond the call of duty in their commitment to work with students and see them grow and succeed. It is very fitting that we shine a spotlight on these faculty members’ remarkable efforts, and extend our deep appreciation."
