Congratulations to Associate Professor Lisa Woodley, who has received the 2021 Chapman Family Teaching Award! This is an incredible honor for Lisa and our School — rarely in the history of the award has it gone to someone outside of the College of Arts & Sciences.
Established in 1993, the Chapman Award honors distinguished teaching of undergraduate students, and to be eligible for the award, a nominee must have five years of teaching experience at UNC. As a Chapman awardee, Lisa will receive $30,000 that must be spent within a five-year period.
“The University Committee on Teaching Awards was greatly impressed by your outstanding contributions to undergraduate teaching on our campus,” wrote Chancellor Guskiewicz in her award letter. “Both your students and faculty colleagues were enthusiastic in their praise of your commitment to the highest standards of teaching. You have clearly provided your students with a rich, supportive environment for higher learning and an exceptionally positive role for their own careers.”
