The Ellis and Nelle Levitt Distinguished Professorship has long been an important way to recognize and reward superior performance by Drake University faculty members. Only one new Levitt Professor was selected this year, and it was given to Sally Beisser, Professor in the School of Education.
The criteria for selection included teaching effectiveness as demonstrated by teaching in a classroom setting and/or mentoring in an experiential learning setting, professional contributions through scholarly activity, demonstrated leadership, consulting activities, and contributions to the mission of the department, college, and university. The initial appointment is for five years.
