Montgomery Selected as COPLAC Nominee

Chad Montgomery, professor of biology, is Truman’s nominee for the 2023 COPLAC Dunn Award.   

Each year the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC) asks its member institutions to submit one nominee to be considered for the Dunn Award. This award recognizes a faculty member whose commitment to student success goes beyond the traditional roles of teacher, academic advisor and mentor. The goal is to recognize a faculty colleague who consistently enacts the values of the public liberal arts – to foster engagement with learning, communities and public service.

Each academic school was asked to nominate, through their own process, one faculty member to be considered. The nominees were: Michael Barnes, associate professor of accounting; Rebecca Dierking, associate professor of English education; Julia Edgar, associate professor of communication disorders; and Montgomery.
