CHHS Professor Receives Distinguished Teaching Professorship Award

Steve Elliott recieves prestigious award On Thursday, Sept. 10, Dr. Steve Elliott, associate director and professor of the School of Health and Applied Human Sciences, received the Distinguished Teaching Professorship Award.

The award was presented to Elliott by UNCW's Chancellor, Jose Sartarelli at a faculty meeting held in the Education Building.

The Distinguished Teaching Professorship Award recognizes and rewards faculty who make outstanding contributions to UNCW's instructional program. Eligibility is limited to full-time, tenured professors who have been teaching at the university for at least seven years.

Elliott joined the UNCW faculty in 2006. In addition to the Distinguished Teaching Professorship Award, he has been recognized with a Chancellor's Teaching Excellence Award and a Discere Aude mentoring award. He is also the recent recipient of the NCAAHPERD (North Carolina Association of Athletics, Health and Physical Education, Recreation and Dance) University Teacher of the Year Award.

A student writes about Elliott, "He is . . . constantly putting forth that extra effort for all his students, yet never asks for any accolades in return. He is absolutely, without a doubt, the teacher that I will always remember, the one who made the greatest impact, the one that truly cared and the one that someday I will strive to emulate."
