Emily Gregory Award Winner Announced

Written by

Looks like Mary Gordon isn’t the only one to win something this week at Barnard. The 34th Emily Gregory Award (named for the first woman to be given full professorship at Columbia) has been awarded to BC dance professor Lynn Garafola.

There will be a big fancy reception–offering celebratory alcohol, provided you were born over 21 years ago and have two forms of ID saying as much–on March 25.

Hurrah, hurrah.

    What's this award for?

    • Emily Gregory

      is the Barnard teaching award -- professors are nominated by students who write an essay about why the professor deserves the award, the best is chosen by the McAC Network Committee (who plans and hosts the event) and approved by the Provost. It's a huge honor because it's chosen almost entirely by student input.

    why is barnards teaching award named after columbias first woman to get tenure?
