Majeed Attracts Underkofler Award
Professor of Religious Studies Debra Majeed received the 2016-17 James R. Underkofler Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award at a faculty and staff recognition party in March.
Majeed was nominated by students for the Underkofler, which is sponsored by Alliant Energy and the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities. Students praised Majeed for her “energy, accessibility, and deep knowledge of her field.” They described her as a well-prepared and thoughtful teacher of complex and sensitive issues and recognized her for her commitment to developing personal relationships with them. Majeed is shown with President Scott Bierman just after the recognition ceremony in Moore Lounge.
