Lanning Receives UNC’s Prestigious Tanner Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching

All congratulations to Assistant Professor Rhonda Lanning who is one of five faculty members from across campus to receive the prestigious Tanner Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching.

Students nominate deserving faculty members for the Tanner Awards, which seeks to recognize recipients for their care for students, mentorship and effective use of classroom methods.

“These award-winning scholars exemplify the dedication of Carolina faculty members,” said Provost Bob Blouin. “Their work in the classroom and through their research demonstrates dedication and determination to uphold Carolina’s mission of inspiring the next generation of leaders and guiding them to learn and grow.”

“We are delighted to see Rhonda receive this well-deserved recognition,” said Nena Peragallo Montano, dean of the UNC School of Nursing. “Her reputation as a world-class educator is well known at the School of Nursing, and we are pleased and proud to see that reputation gain a wider audience on campus. We are most grateful for the exemplar of excellence Dr. Lanning is for our students and for the quality of education we provide at Carolina Nursing.”

Recipients of the Tanner Award will be recognized at the UNC vs. Syracuse men’s basketball game on February 26, and a banquet will be held in their honor on April 8. Each recipient receives a $7,500 stipend and a commemorative plaque.

Congratulations once again, Rhonda!
