Dr. Sniad Receives 2017 Faculty Award

At the Faculty Awards Luncheon on April 25, 13 educators and scholars were recognized with the university’s highest honors for their excellence in creativity, research and teaching. These faculty represent the university’s most distinguished professors, whose achievements include breakthroughs in the study of mood disorders, neurodegenerative processes and neonatal lung support, as well as the inspiration and skilled mentorship of undergraduate and graduate students.
 
Individuals are selected for the awards by a committee that reviews nominations from students and colleagues at Temple and other institutions.
 
No matter what their discipline or the nature of the classroom in which they teach, Temple faculty are an outstanding group of scholars, researchers, artists, performers and teachers,” Provost JoAnne Epps said, following the luncheon. “I am very proud of my colleagues across all disciplines, and today was the perfect way to celebrate their achievements with our community.
 
One of the individuals recognized was Dr. Tamara Sniad, assistant professor of instruction in teaching and learning. Dr. Sniad was awarded the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Foundation Award For Distinguished Teaching.
 
A former student of Dr. Sniad stated, "Any former student of Dr. Sniad's can tell you that her class is by no means smooth sailing. Dr. Sniad encouraged us to dig deeper into the content and to think critically about the topics. We were pushed to be the best educators we could be.”
