The UConn Foundation Office of Alumni Relations recently recognized the outstanding contributions and achievements of two CAHNR faculty members with Faculty Excellence Awards.

Department of Allied Health Sciences Associate Professor in Residence Judy Brown received the Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award on the Undergraduate Level.

The Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award on the Graduate Level went to Department of Kinesiology Distinguished Professor Linda Pescatello.

According to the UConn Alumni website, “The Faculty Excellence in Teaching Awards are given to individual faculty for excellence in teaching. These awards recognize individuals who rise above good instruction, engage students thoroughly in the process of learning, and have contributed significantly to the intellectual life of the University through their teaching. Individuals who are nominated for this award must have a distinguished record of sustained teaching excellence and must have worked at UConn for at least 10 years.”

Brown and Pescatello were honored with medals and a monetary reward. They were recognized at the Faculty Awards Reception and the Endowed Faculty Reception both held on October 25 in Hartford.
