Uri Treisman, Dana Center executive director, has been teaching for 46 years. The University of Texas System’s Board of Regents has awarded him their highest honor, the Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award.
“From the beginning of my academic career in 1971, teaching has been at the center of my life,” said Uri. “It has shaped the choices I’ve made in all aspects of my professional work and engagement in public service. Seeing my students succeed—and in some cases, surpass my accomplishments—has been a source of unimaginable pleasure.”
Established by the Board of Regents in 2008, the Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Awards underscore the Board of Regents’ commitment to ensuring that University of Texas institutions are places of intellectual exploration and discovery, educational excellence and unparalleled opportunity. Faculty members undergo a series of rigorous evaluations by students, peer faculty and external reviewers.
Please join us in congratulating Uri on this well-deserved honor!
