The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees recognized 31 outstanding educators from campuses around the state for the exemplary teaching they provide to students.

The awards event took place April 22, 2015, in St. Paul, Minnesota.
“The faculty honored have made an exceptional contribution to the extraordinary education we provide for all Minnesotans,” said Thomas Renier, BOT chair. “The work they do in teaching, curriculum development, advising, financial aid, registration, residential life and student affairs is vital to our ability to serve students and communities in every corner of the state.”
“If our students are going to succeed in an increasingly complex world, there is no substitute for extraordinary faculty,” said Steven Rosenstone, MnSCU chancellor. “We have dedicated, talented, and creative faculty on all of our campuses. Today we honor some of the very best of them for their excellence in teaching and in fostering student growth and development.”
