Dr. Charlotte Rich earns the highest honor for teaching excellence at Eastern Kentucky University
Dr. Charlotte Rich was one of two professors who earned the highest honor for teaching excellence at Eastern Kentucky University.
Rich, who joined the EKU faculty in 1999, is the author of “Transcending the New Woman: Multiethnic Narratives in the Progressive Era” and served as the editor of the Charlotte Perkins Gilman Newsletter from 2003 to 2007. She received the National Society of Collegiate Scholars Award in 2014 and has been recognized several times at EKU for teaching excellence. Her academic specialties include American literature, especially late 19th and 20 centuries, and multiethnic and women writers.
Rich earned a bachelor’s degree in English from Miami University of Ohio and a doctoral degree in English from the University of Georgia.
All full-time tenured faculty members are eligible for the award. The selection is made by a committee composed of faculty, and the process provides for a high degree of peer review.
Sixty-three professors have been honored for teaching excellence by the EKU Foundation since the awards were first given in 1988.
