Professor Amit Savkar has been awarded the 2021 Teaching Excellence: Career Award from the UConn-AAUP, one of only two recipients in the university. The recipients were chosen by the UConn-AAUP Excellence Awards Committee from a pool of excellent candidates.

The recognition of faculty teaching, research, and service excellence through UConn-AAUP awards began in 1997. The intention of the awards is to showcase academic excellence at UConn.

A virtual ZOOM ceremony to honor Professor Savkar, and other UConn-AAUP award recipients, will take place on Wednesday, April 28th, at 1:00 pm. Any and all who wish to attend are welcome, and are asked to email Barbara Kratochvil to receive the ZOOM link.
