Three professors selected by GCCCU

Three educators from Miami's regional campuses were honored recently by the Greater Cincinnati Consortium of Colleges and Universities (GCCCU).

Robert Davis (math, Hamilton), Lizz Howard (computer and information technology, Middletown) and Robert Schorman (history, Middletown), along with 17 other area university professors, received the organization's Celebration of Teaching Award at ceremonies held Nov. 11 at Xavier University.

Davis “coaches and coaxes students into clearer understanding and better thinking” in mathematical subjects ranging from algebra to pre-calculus to statistics. He began teaching at Miami Hamilton in 1992. He received his bachelor's degree from Loyola University and his master's degree and Ph.D. from the University of Southwestern Louisiana.

Howard began teaching at Miami in 1995. One of her nominators said, “In a department where each faculty member takes pride in being a good teacher, Lizz is the best of the best.” She received a B.S. in computer engineering from Wright State University and an M.S.A. in systems analysis from Miami.

Schorman joined Miami in 2001. He received a B.A. in English literature from the University of Michigan, a master's and a Ph.D. in American history from Indiana University. A nominator wrote, “Wherever you find targeted efforts to improve teaching and learning at Middletown, you are most likely to find Rob at the core of these activities.” His latest book is Selling Style: Clothing and Social Change at the Turn of the Century.

The Celebration of Teaching Award is in its 18th year.
