Salome Fouts

Provost's Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Lecturer, 2018

Salome Fouts, senior lecturer and the director of African Languages at the Center for Languages, Literatures and Cultures, has received the Provost's Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Lecturer

The Provost’s Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Lecturer annually recognizes a maximum of six lecturers, senior lecturers or other associated faculty members for their teaching excellence. Students, faculty, staff and alumni may put forward nominees, and a committee of students, faculty and alumni will choose the recipients.

"Dr. Fouts is more than just a teacher, and I think everyone that has taken a class from her can attest to this,” one of Fouts' students wrote. "She is our biggest cheerleader, hardest critic and our person to go to during any struggles we might be facing."

"I have rarely seen an educator so committed to the joy and power of sharing knowledge and so excited to learn WITH her students," another student wrote.

Her giving heart and her uplifting attitude are unrivaled, and I am so thankful to know her and to be taught by someone so genuine and so thoughtful."

Fouts and other award recipients will be recognized with a $5,000 honorarium made possible by the Office of Academic Affairs.
