Dr. Marianne Miserandino, Associate Professor of Psychology, was named the Arcadia University Professor of the Year for 2009 at the Undergraduate Commencement on May 15. Arcadia University participates in the national Professors of the Year Program, jointly sponsored by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
"In bestowing this honor on Professor Miserandino, we recognize her dedication to undergraduate teaching and to her students; her contributions to the pedagogy of psychology; and her service to her profession and to Arcadia University," said Dr. Michael Berger, Associate Vice President and Provost. "Dr. Miserandino's success in the classroom is attested to in the voices of the students she teaches, who note that she 'is one of the warmest, most involved, and, more importantly, most knowledgeable professors' I have ever had, that 'she teaches with an engaging style that applies real-world experiences to textbook information,' and that 'her assignments taught us to push our own boundaries to see what theories and beliefs controlled our own behavior.'"
