Andrew Shryock is the recipient of the 2011 John Dewey Award for long term commitment to undergraduate teaching. This award is presented by the LSA Executive Committee to one among the pool of those who are recommended for promotion from Associate Professor to Professor in a given year.
The award honors those who, in the spirit of John Dewey, have shown a consistent dedication to the education of undergraduates at the University. Modeling Dewey's own example, recipients show a parallel engagement in the following areas: his scholarly productivity, provision of leadership, and engagement with and care for students.
The Committee takes particular care to make this award to a colleague who has demonstrated a long-term commitment to the education of undergraduate students over her or his years with the University.
