On Monday, April 18 the LBJ School's student-run Graduate Public Affairs Council (GPAC) held its annual LBJ School Faculty Appreciation Awards ceremony. The awards recognize faculty members across six categories, including most engaging teaching style, most valuable class, and best new professor.

Nominees for the awards were selected by the LBJ School’s student body, and winners were chosen by the number of nominations they received.

The Strauss Center’s Research Coordinator Kate Weaver received the award for Best Policy Research Project and the Strauss Center’s Distinguished Scholar William Inboden received the award for Best New Professor.

The awards event was organized in part by Karen Chung, a first-year MPAff student.

“The awards ceremony is an expression of our gratitude to the professors who really stand out,” said Chung. “It’s important to give recognition to our faculty for the time and dedication they put into making the LBJ School the excellent learning community that it is.”

Dr. Inboden expressed his appreciation for both the award and for his students.

“This award is a profound honor, but I think it really reflects what wonderful students we have here at the LBJ School,” Inboden said. “I have found teaching and working with them to be a constant source of inspiration, stimulation, and joy.”
