MDC announces 2010 Endowed Teaching Chairs
I am very pleased to announce the recipients of the 2010 Endowed Teaching Chairs. The recognition of our outstanding faculty via this program is among the College's most valued traditions. It is made possible by the generosity of our donors who also recognize the program’s value, and by the ongoing work of the MDC Foundation.
As much as any program at the College, the Endowed Teaching Chair reflects our identity and our aspiration to excellence as an institution. On a day-to-day basis, these professors accomplish the heart of MDC’s mission.
Please join me in congratulating the following eight professors, who will join the list of 278 endowed chair recipients honored since the program's inception in 1992:
