Boston University College of  General Studies recently recognized two outstanding CGS faculty members for their teaching and service. Cheryl Boots, a senior lecturer in humanities, won the Ismael Sensel Award. The Dr. Ismail Sensel Award Fund was established in 2004 with a gift from Dr. Sensel’s estate for the purpose of recognizing and honoring outstanding professors. Recipients of the award are selected by the Dean of the College of General Studies, in consultation with the CGS Alumni Association and its Student Advisory Board. Special consideration may be given to the professors’ research and/or curriculum development projects.

Jeffery Vail, another senior lecturer in humanities, won the Peyton Richter Award for outstanding interdisciplinary teaching. This award is funded by alumnus Gary Kraut. The Richter Award, derived from the Professors Fund, honors the vital contributions made by Professor Peyton Richter to interdisciplinary teaching for nearly four decades. Recipients are recognized for their excellence in interdisciplinary teaching.

CGS congratulates both professors for their excellent teaching, scholarship, and contributions to CGS and the Boston University community.
