Galit Golan

Provost's Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Lecturer, 2019

Galit Golan, lecturer in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures and Hebrew language program coordinator, has received the Provost's Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Lecturer, which annually recognizes up to six lecturers, senior lecturers or other associated faculty for their teaching excellence.

“She encourages her students to make mistakes and learn from them — she doesn’t make learning a new language intimidating,” one of Golan’s students wrote. “I wake up every morning excited to go to her class.”

“Galit has not only been a productive force in fostering the linguistic abilities of students, she has also been a tremendously popular instructor,” said a colleague. “She is consistently lauded for her preparation, her willingness to help, her availability outside of class and her friendly manner.”

Golan and other recipients will be recognized with a $5,000 honorarium, supported by the Office of Academic Affairs.
