The 2020 Michèle Dominy Award for Teaching Excellence has been
awarded to Professor Éric Trudel
The Michèle Dominy Award for Teaching Excellence, established in 2015 to honor Professor Dominy’s fourteen years of service as Dean of the College, is awarded to Associate Professor of French Éric Trudel, who embodies a “delicate balance between rigor and kindness, abstract knowledge and deep personal engagement,” in recognition of “his impeccably professional, personal, and humane teaching ways.” The award honors rigorous and challenging teaching, creativity in course design and pedagogy, and energetic engagement inside and outside the classroom.
