Stephen Norris ASG Outstanding Professor

05/10/2006

Miami University's Associated Student Government has given its Outstanding Professor Award to Stephen Norris, assistant professor of history.

An ASG committee received the names of 65 nominees; Jens Sutmöller, ASG secretary for academic affairs, announced the winner at an on-campus banquet this spring.

In her letter of nomination, senior history major Katherine Bibish discussed ways Norris creates a positive classroom experience: “He encourages students to speak by giving positive feedback, and he sets the tone of the class to be a respectful environment where students feel they can express themselves but also engage others in discussion in a professional and academic way.”

Norris joined the Miami faculty in 2002. His teaching interests include Russian cultural history and film history.
