Schwartz Receives President's Award for Distinguished Teaching
June 5, 2012. Princeton, NJ. Jeffrey Schwartz, Professor of Chemistry, was one of four Princeton faculty members chosen to receive the President's Award for Distinguished Teaching at commencement ceremonies this morning, Tuesday, June 5. As described on the University’s home page, Jeff was selected for his exceptional teaching and mentoring of his students, embracing, "a collaborative approach that is underscored with humor and generosity."
The awards were established in 1991 through gifts by Princeton alumni Lloyd Cotsen of the Class of 1950 and John Sherrerd of the Class of 1952 to recognize excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching by Princeton faculty members. Each winner receives a cash prize of $5,000, and his or her department receives $3,000 for the purchase of new books. A committee of faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, and academic administrators selected the winners from nominations by students, faculty colleagues and alumni.
