Lucrezia Culicchia Award – Mindy PedenOn Sept. 25, 2013, at the College of Arts and Sciences faculty meeting, Dr. Mindy Peden was presented with the Lucrezia Culicchia award for teaching excellence, which is given to a member of the faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences who has made a distinct difference in the teaching climate of the college in such areas as model classroom teaching, campus leadership about teaching issues, pioneering teaching methodology, and creative course development. Dr. Peden took the idea that teaching is a weapon – a weapon of the imagination – as the theme for her remarks. Imagination is crucial to changing the world when students and faculty identify deep problems. If we can’t imagine it
another way, then it never will be. Four of Dr. Peden’s students – Aidan Kelly, Jarrod Kilburn, Bryan Kroetsch, and Alyssa Singer – also paid tribute to her talents and contributions as a teacher.
