Sally Goldman receives the 2012 Distinguished Teaching Award

The Department is delighted to announce that Dr. Sally Goldman has just received the 2012 Distinguished Teaching Award in recognition of her outstanding contribution to instruction on campus, through her teaching of Sanskrit at UC Berkeley. 

The Berkeley campus' most prestigious award for teaching, the Distinguished Teaching Award is intended to encourage and recognize individual excellence in teaching. Such teaching rises above good teaching: it incites intellectual curiosity in students, engages them thoroughly in the enterprise of learning, and has a life-long impact. While acknowledging the fact that the Berkeley faculty comprises many outstanding teachers, the Committee on Teaching is extremely selective in determining the recipients of this award: only 240 faculty have received the award since its inception in 1959.
