Dr. Robyn also won the Outstanding Teaching Award for 2010-11, sponsored by the University Teaching Council. This award, sponsored by the University Teaching Council, goes annually to KSU’s most talented and respected non-tenure-track (NTT) instructors. Rick, the long-time director of our Washington Program in National Issues (WPNI), was clearly overdue for this award. Not only did his nomination spark dozens of endorsements from WPNI alumni, many students from his Kent classes let the Teaching Council know how Rick inspired them and shaped their futures. This outpouring from students attests to Rick’s commitment to students, hard work, and boundless excitement about all things Washington (particularly Thomas Paine!). Way to go Rick!
