Kathryn Warren Wins Another Prestigious Teaching Award


Dr. Kathryn Warren was presented with the Honors College Outstanding Faculty Award for 2017-2018 at the Honors Scholarship and Induction Ceremony held on September 13, 2018. Dr. Warren was recognized for the timeliness, innovation, and quality of her courses. She has taught Honors writing courses focusing on “Humanitarian Rhetoric” and “The Rhetoric of Race,” and has worked with numerous students on Honors contracts and senior research projects. Former Interim Dean of Honors, Kevin Gustafson, also a Professor of English, commented of Dr. Warren: “She very much embodies the combination of intellect, creativity, and dedication that makes Honors education possible at UT Arlington.” Dr. Warren has thought carefully about the question of what an English professor in particular has to offer students who are going on to be engineers, doctors, architects, or historians. As well as helping students to develop “a skill set with professional utility,” Dr. Warren also hopes to transform students with her teaching by opening up “opportunities for discovery and growth through intellectual exploration.”

This award recognizes her success in both these goals. But it’s only the latest in a string of teaching awards that Dr. Warren has won in the past two years. In 2016 she was honored with the College of Liberal Arts Outstanding Teaching Award for Faculty Outside the Tenure Stream and the Provost’s Award for Excellence in Teaching, and in 2017 she was recognized as the Arlington Sunrise Rotary Club Professor of the Year for the Honors College and also won the highly prestigious Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award, awarded by the University of Texas System.
