Kahn Award: Classical Studies
At a reception for SAS faculty on April 28, in addition to presenting the Abrams Award to Dr. Robert Rescorla , Dean Samuel Preston will give the Kahn Award for Educational Excellence to the Department of Classical Studies and Ancient History, which he described as "a model in its use of the most modern educational tools--innovative pedagogy and the latest technology--to bring the classical world alive for its students."
The department is chaired by Dr. Ralph Rosen, with Dr. Sheila Murnaghan as undergraduate chair and Dr. Joseph Farrell as graduate chair. The Kahn Award is in its second year as a $6000 prize for a department, undergraduate program, graduate group or center than demonstrates "extraordinary collective faculty commitment to teaching, curriculum innovation, and service to students."
