Stanford Bass University Fellows in Undergraduate Education announced

The Bass University Fellows in Undergraduate Education Program recognizes faculty members for their extraordinary contributions to undergraduate education.

Seven faculty members have been named or reappointed Bass University Fellows for 2018-19 in recognition of their exceptional contributions to undergraduate education.

The appointment announcement was made by Harry Elam, senior vice provost for education. The Bass University Fellows in Undergraduate Education Program was established in 2001.  Anne T., MLA ’07, and Robert M. Bass, MBA ’74, provided matching funds to create the program. Individual fellowships are named in honor of donors who made significant gifts to the Campaign for Undergraduate Education, which was completed in 2005.

Bass fellows are invited to join the Bass Council of Fellows, which meets twice a year and advises the vice provost for undergraduate education on a variety of issues. Once a faculty member rotates out of an individual fellow appointment, he or she becomes a Bass University Fellow in Undergraduate Education in perpetuity.

The Bass University Fellows program is one of several annual awards for effective teaching that are given at the university and school level and by student groups. For a full list of Stanford teaching awards, visit the Teaching Commons website.
