Hats off to Assistant Professor Cecilia Roscigno, PhD, RN, CNRN for receiving a 2016 Student Undergraduate Teaching Award! Recipients were selected from nominations made by undergraduate students for “demonstrated teaching excellence, success in positively affecting a broad spectrum of students both in and outside of the classroom, and creation of a dynamic learning environment.”
A letter from the Executive Branch of Student Government stated “The [Student Undergraduate Teaching and Staff Awards Committee] received many qualified nominations this year, but your nomination stood out among the rest.”
Excerpts from her nominations included:
“Dr. Cecilia Roscigno exemplifies excellence in undergraduate teaching.”
“Not only was Dr. Roscigno a wonderful instructor, the very manner in which she conducted her class was innovative.”
“Through her honest, yet emotionally reaffirming personality, Dr. Roscigno is able to reach both traditional and non-traditional students. She has the amazing ability to motivate students and begin to instill the confidence they need to begin seeing themselves as professionals.”
Dr. Roscigno will be formally recognized for this achievement, which comes with a $5,000 monetary award, at the Chancellor’s Awards Ceremony this afternoon.
