Oliver receives Murphy Award
Haley Oliver, associate professor in the Department of Food Science, has been named a recipient of the 2018 Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Award in Memory of Charles B. Murphy. Oliver was surprised with the news on Monday (March 19).
Purdue will continue to announce Murphy Award winners and Exceptional Early Career Award recipients throughout the week.
The University's highest undergraduate teaching honor, the Murphy Award is accompanied by a $10,000 cash award and induction into Purdue's Teaching Academy, which provides leadership for the improvement of undergraduate, graduate and outreach teaching. Murphy was a history professor at Purdue from 1927 to 1970.
The Exceptional Early Career Award recognizes outstanding undergraduate teaching among Purdue's early career, tenure-track faculty. Recipients of the award will receive a $5,000 award with additional funds for a department business account.
The recipients of both awards will be honored at an invitation-only luncheon on April 2. A list of past Murphy Award and Early Career Award recipients is at https://www.purdue.edu/provost/faculty/charlesAward.html. A list of all winners of teaching awards is at www.purdue.edu/cie/teachingawards.
