2008 Recipient of the Meneve Dunham Award for Excellence in Teaching

Instructor of Education Michele Vosberg 

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 Michele:

“In my time at Clarke, I have come to know Michele as an outstanding instructor. She has consistently inspired me as I study to practice in my field. This professor has positively influenced countless lives and it has been a pleasure and honor to be educated by such a knowledgeable and enthusiastic individual.”

A faculty colleague wrote:

“First and foremost, Michele is an excellent teacher. She models creativity in instruction and more importantly, models methods to achieve critical thinking. She causes her students to wonder, to work hard and to grasp learning and make it meaningful for themselves.”

Another student wrote:

“Not only did I take away so much content knowledge from this Michele’s courses, I also took away much more valuable knowledge. She is someone I can go to with a problem, personal or professional, and know I will not get judged for it.” 

Michele holds bachelor’s and master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and will complete her doctoral dissertation in the next few months from Cappella University.
