For the 2021-2022 academic year, Dr. Carla Strickland-Hughes was awarded the Stephen E. Corson Award. The award committee reviewed applications with letters of support from students and peers. Additionally, they were impressed with signs of innovation across Strickland-Hughes' teaching, including intergenerational discussion activities, introduction of specifications grading, and collaboration with the Center for Teaching and Learning.
The Stephen E. Corson Award was established in 2004 by the Reverend John E. Corson, former Pacific Regent, and Sylvia Bradbury Corson, in memory of their son, Stephen Edmund Corson, who passed away at the age of 38. The award is given each year to one faculty member in the College of the Pacific who has distinguished himself or herself in the teaching of freshmen students.
