Dr. Donald Baucom, a Richard Simpson Distinguished Professor of Clinical Psychology, is a recipient of the 2020 University Teaching Award – the Distinguished Teaching Award for Post-Baccalaureate Instruction.
The Distinguished Teaching Award for Post-Baccalaureate Instruction was first given by the University in 1995 to recognize the important role of post-baccalaureate teaching.
Dr. Baucom, along with 24 other faculty members and graduate students, have been named winners of Carolina’s 2020 University Teaching Awards. The University Committee on Teaching Awards, which oversees the selection process, encouraged students to nominate deserving faculty and graduate teaching assistants for the awards. The committee specifically sought nominations with a commitment to care of our students, outstanding mentorship, and effective use of classroom methods. The winner of the Distinguished Teaching Award for Post-Baccalaureate Instruction receives a one-time stipend of $5,000 and a framed citation. Dr. Baucom will also be recognized at half-time of the UNC-Wake Forest men’s basketball game on March 3, 2020 and will be honored at an awards banquet on April 21, 2020. Congratulations to Dr. Baucom on this well-deserved honor!
