Todd Michney Wins Serve, Learn, Sustain Award
Posted March 6, 2018
Todd Michney, assistant professor in the School of History and Sociology (HSOC), has been awarded the SLS Award for Excellence in Community-Engaged Sustainability Teaching.
His course, “Semester in the City,” positively shapes the students and sets a high bar for community-engagement at the Institute. In their letters, Michney’s students reflected on the impact not only of his innovative course design, assignments, and out-of-the-classroom experiences, but also the particular framework he offered them for doing community-based research and projects. Additionally, Executive Director Debra Edelson of the Grove Park Foundation wrote appreciatively of Michney’s “commitment to the Grove Park community through . . . research, oral histories and by modeling local partnership” to his students.
The award will be given at the Awards Luncheon in the Student Center on April 11th.
