As part of the National Library Week 2013 celebration, Union College Library has presented its Teacher of the Year Award to Dr. Frankie Rose, Assistant Professor of Biology. Approximately twenty Physician Assistant students and faculty members nominated Rose, each one sharing stories of his passion for teaching and his integration of library resources into classroom activities. According to students, Rose consistently finds "books and videos from the library to supplement classroom materials." One student summarized his view of Rose as someone "who encourages me to seek excellence and to constantly improve my knowledge of healthcare."
The purpose of the Library Teacher of the Year Award is to reward faculty members who make significant use of the library, encourage students' use of the library, and who contribute significantly to collection development. Rose is exemplary in meeting each of these criteria. Congratulations to Dr. Frankie Rose from the Union College Library staff!
