Louise Bishop, associate professor of literature in the Robert D. Clark Honors College, received a Thomas F. Herman Faculty Achievement Award for Distinguished Teaching. A long-time CSWS faculty affiliate and former member of the advisory board, Bishop has been at the UO for more than 27 years. Students and faculty repeatedly note her remarkable breadth of knowledge, infectious enthusiasm for her subject matter, deep care for her students as learners and the ability to engage them deeply and widely in inquiry and dialogue. Bishop, currently at Oxford University, will receive the in-person accolade this fall.
“Professor Bishop commands a rare blend of passion for teaching, command of an academic discipline and the art of adjusting instruction to individual student needs without sacrificing rigor,” said David Frank, former dean of the Clark Honors College.
