2010 Recipient of the Meneve Dunham Award for Excellence in Teaching

Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Michelle Slover

The Clarke College Board of Trustees established the Meneve Dunham Award for Excellence in Teaching in honor of former President Meneve Dunham. A review committee of faculty and students recommends the selected recipient to the president.

One student wrote about Michelle:

“Michelle has helped me learn and think in ways I have never done before. She has helped me find my confidence within myself to reach the goals I have set up in life. Without her I would never have survived this last year.”

A colleague wrote:

“Michelle knowing students by their first name after the first day of class is remarkable. She knows their short and long term goals and does everything in her control to assist them achieve these goals.”

Another student wrote:

“I want to have the same passion for whatever career I choose and the ability to really connect with and help people like Michelle. It is possible to actually see the learning that is taking place every time she interacts with students. Michelle’s passion for teaching is unmistakable and worthy of recognition.”

Michelle holds a bachelor’s degree from Bemidji State University and a Ph.D. from the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
