What is this award?

Team-teaching is a crucial dynamic of intellectual community. A great way for honors students to pursue inquiry and learn constructive argument is to witness and join lively conversations between professors who bring different educations and interests to important questions. Among many, Professor Lane Davis excelled at team teaching and this award, named in his honor, recognizes and encourages faculty to team teach honors students. Awardees receive a monetary award and personalized memento. Presentation of these awards is made during the Honors Commendation Ceremony held in May the evening before Commencement.

How is the winner selected?

The Honors Professional Staff review student course evaluations to select awardees. Presentation of this award is contingent upon the availability of team-taught honors course offerings.
