Two Professors Win Joyce Award

Author: Mary Jo Young

The Department of Irish Language and Literature proudly announces two of its faculty members, Professor Tara MacLeod and Professor Brian Ó Conchubhair, have been honored with the Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C. Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching for 2011.

The Joyce Award is named for the late executive vice president of Notre Dame. It honors faculty members who have had a profound influence on undergraduate students through sustained exemplary teaching, and, in particular, recognizes professors who create environments that stimulate significant student learning, elevate students to a new level of intellectual engagement, and foster students' ability to express themselves effectively within their disciplines.

This is the first time this award has been given to a faculty member of the Department of Irish Language and Literature and the department is very proud to have TWO faculty members receive the award. We would like to congratulate them both on their excellent achievement!!
