The Ed Snider Center was thrilled that our director, Rajshree Agarwal, was one of the recipients of the 2017-18 Distinguished Scholar-Teacher award!
The Distinguished Scholar-Teacher award honors those UMD faculty members who deliver trailblazing research and teaching excellence in the classroom, and who personify the ideal image of the University of Maryland professorate. Those who accomplish such a prestigious award signify what it means to be passionate and innovative. This program recognizes faculty members who have led the way in scholarship and teaching, who have brought a passion for learning to their colleagues and students, and who serve as models of what a professor at a fine research university should be. The award is vetted by a panel of former Distinguished Scholar-Teacher awardees and the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs.
As part of the Distinguished Scholar-Teacher honor, recipients host a public presentation during the fall semester on a topic of scholarly interest. Agarwal presented a lecture on Fostering Enterprise: Where the Journey is the Destination, on October 19, 2017. Watch the full lecture.
