Recipient of the Diana Colbert Innovative Teaching Prize 

Award description: “The [Graduate Center] English Program offers an annual Innovative Teaching Prize in memory of Diana Colbert.  Diana, a student in our Program from 2006-2011, is remembered for her brilliance as a scholar, her dedication and creativity as a teacher, and her kindness and empathy towards her classmates in the Ph.D. Program in English.  She loved teaching CUNY undergraduates, with a particular gift for supporting students struggling with college-level work.

The Diana Colbert Innovative Teaching Prize honors excellence in course design in three areas close to Diana’s heart: nineteenth-century literature and culture, African American literature and Africana studies, and politics and literature.”
