of Rubinstein Award
Political Science Teaching Evaluation Committee has selected Justin
Wert as the inaugural recipient of the Alvin Z. Rubinstein
Memorial Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Political Science
Wert is a fourth-year doctoral student. He has served as a TA
in eight courses with five different faculty members. He also
has served as a fellow in the Writing Across the University Program.
His first teaching experience, in fall 1998, was with Dr. Rubinstein.
Wert was described by one of his students as "an incredible teaching
assistant" because of his "ability to treat us as intelligent
students" and because he realizes that "most students attend lectures
and do the reading and therefore do not need a repetition of the
lecture but rather they would like to touch on subjects unexplored."
Rubinstein Award was created earlier this year in memory of Professor
of Political Science Alvin Z. Rubinstein, who passed away in December
8, 2002). It is made possible by the generosity of his students,
colleagues, and friends.
