Mikki Hebl: Baylor University’s Cherry Award Lecture

  • McMurtry Auditorium, Duncan Hall (map)

Mikki Hebl, Professor of Psychology, is a finalist for the Robert Foster Cherry Award—a national teaching award housed at Baylor University.  As a finalist, she has already won $15,000 for herself and $10,000 for her department.  If she wins the award, she will receive $250,000 for herself and $25,000 for her department.  This award is a tremendous honor and is only given out once every two years.  More information on the award can be found here.

As a finalist, Mikki must give one lecture at Baylor and one here at Rice.  The home-base lecture will take place on Monday, October 5th, at 4:00 in McMurtry Auditorium.  Our Provost will offer welcoming remarks, and a reception will follow the event.  The Center for Teaching Excellence is coordinating the details for the lecture, and we are hoping that many from the Rice community will consider attending.
