Four Princeton faculty members received President's Awards for Distinguished Teaching at Commencement ceremonies June 1.

They are: Jeremy Adelman, the Walter Samuel Carpenter III Professor in Spanish Civilization and Culture and professor of history; John Fleming, the Louis Fairchild '24 Professor of English and Comparative Literature; Alison Gammie, lecturer in molecular biology; and James Sturm, professor of electrical engineering.

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, undergraduate and graduate students and academic administrators selected the winners from nominations by current students, faculty colleagues and alumni.

More details are available in a news release.
