CACM Professor Wins "Distinguished Teaching Award"Posted Apr. 19, 2000
The Center for Applied Conflict Management is pleased to announce that Dr. Patrick Coy, a professor at the Center, was awarded the Kent State University College of Arts and Sciences Student Advisory Council "Distinguished Teaching Award" for academic year 1999-2000.
Nominations for this award are made by students in the College of Arts and Sciences, and students on the College's student advisory council select the awardees. There were 57 nominees this year, and three awardees.
A story in the Daily Kent Stater quoted a student involved in the deliberations regarding her/his (student participation is anonymous) support for Dr. Coy:
"Patrick Coy is what all teachers should be. but unfortunately, he is what most never will be. He inspires students to strive to make the world a better place."
"The two characteristics that prompted me to vote for Dr. Coy are his concerns for student success and well-being and his dedication and sincere drive to be the absolute best educator he can be. Through his daily expression of these two characteristics, his students know that he truly wants us to be successful. Students in Dr. Coy's classes don't just learn facts, we become educated individuals--better individuals than we were before taking his classes."
