2014 Cornelia Marchall Smith recipient Dr. Roger Kirk was named the recipient of the Charles L. Brewer Distinguished Teaching of Psychology Award. This is the highest teaching award given by the American Psychological Association.
Dr. Charles Weaver, chair of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, writes:
“A number of Dr. Kirk’s former students and colleagues have written letters in support of his nomination. One theme that runs through these letters is Dr. Kirk’s humility, kindness, and dedication. His genuine love of the field of statistics and the enthusiasm with which he approaches teaching creates an ideal atmosphere for learning. He is tireless in working with students; they enter his class with utmost respect for his accomplishments, but leave with a genuine affection for him as well. Baylor University is an institution known for an unwavering commitment to undergraduate education. This reputation was forged over many decades by the dedication of Dr. Kirk and his colleagues, and Roger Kirk remains the embodiment of scholarly excellence. We cannot imagine a candidate more worthy of the honor of receiving the Charles L. Brewer Distinguished Teaching of Psychology Award.”
The ATL would like to congratulate Dr. Kirk on this very prestigious award.
