Allen Roston, associate dean and professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law was among several honorees recognized at the annual Council on Public Higher Education (COPHE) awards luncheon April 7. The luncheon serves as the official award ceremony for those selected to receive the 2017 Governor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching.
The Governor’s Award is presented to a single outstanding faculty member at each participating Missouri college or university. The award, not monetary, is based on effective teaching and advising, service to the university community, commitment to high standards of excellence, and success in nurturing student achievement. Faculty colleagues, departments, schools, and/or recognized campus organizations submit nominations for the award.
COPHE is a nonprofit association comprised of the presidents and chancellors of Missouri’s 13 public four-year universities, and the president of the University of Missouri system. The primary mission of COPHE is to support and advance the mission of Missouri’s public four-year universities, while increasing the understanding and appreciation of public higher education by state leaders and the public at-large.
