Four Princeton faculty members received President's Awards for Distinguished Teaching at Commencement ceremonies June 3.

They are: Robert Gunning, professor of mathematics; Joshua Katz, assistant professor of classics; Harvey Rosen, the John Weinberg Professor of Economics and Business Policy; and Elaine Showalter, the Avalon Foundation Professor of the Humanities.

The awards were established in 1991 through gifts by Princeton alumni Lloyd Cotsen '50 and John Sherrerd '52 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 and undergraduate and graduate students selected the winners from nominations by current students, colleagues and alumni.
