Outstanding Faculty Recognized at Honor's Day
Dr. Christine Bahr, provost and dean, congratulates Dr. Neil Quisenberry, associate professor of sociology, and recipient of the 2013 Exemplary Teacher Award,
given by the United Methodist Church Board of Higher Education. “Neil is widely considered
to be an effective instructor, a helpful colleague and a supporter of students,” said
Dr. Bahr at Honors Day on April 19. “By all accounts, he embodies the criteria that
this award represents - excellence in teaching, civility and concern for students
and colleagues, commitment to value-centered education, and service to students, the
institution and the community.” Neil has taught sociology and criminal justice at McKendree since 2003.
