Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communication will receive the University of Nebraska's highest departmental award for excellence in teaching. Announced April 6, AgLEC (part of the College of Agricultural and Natural Resources) will collect the Universitywide Departmental Teaching Award during an April 30 ceremony in Lincoln. The UDTA recognizes a department within the university that has made a unique and significant contribution to teaching. "AgLEC is a department where the faculty models the very best practices in college teaching and it shows in the results of their students," said John Owens, Vice Chancellor of IANR and NU vice president. "It sort of permeates the entire department that teaching and students are important to each and everyone of these faculty members."
