NU Announces Top Departmental Teaching Award

University of Nebraska System President Ted Carter recently announced that the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Department of Child, Youth and Family Studies won the system’s most prestigious annual honor for excellence in teaching.

The University-wide Departmental Teaching Award recognizes departments or units within the university system that have made significant contributions to NU’s teaching efforts.

“Our fundamental responsibility at the University of Nebraska is to provide outstanding education to our students,” Carter said. “The UNL Department of Child, Youth and Family Studies brings that commitment to life every day.”

Chaired by Michael Merten, G.A. Newkirk Professor of Leadership, the Department of Child, Youth and Family Studies works to enhance the well-being of children, youth, adults and families in the state, nation and world and improve the environments in which people live and learn.

“Our university, our communities and our state are stronger thanks to the department’s extraordinary work,” Carter said.
