Nadia Ellis Wins the 2020 Distinguished Teaching Award

Professor Nadia Ellis is one of four UC Berkeley faculty members to win the 2020 Distinguished Teaching Award. The Distinguished Teaching Award is the campus’s most prestigious honor for teaching and is intended to recognize individual faculty for sustained performance of excellence in teaching. Above and beyond an individual exemplary class, this kind of sustained excellence in teaching incites intellectual curiosity in students, inspires departmental colleagues, and makes students aware of significant relationships between the academy and the world at large.


We welcome all faculty, students, staff, and friends of the English Department in celebrating Professor Ellis along with the other award recipients at a ceremony and reception on August 26, 2020, in Sibley Auditorium at 5 pm.
