Political Science Professor Awarded MAC Outstanding Faculty Award
Congratulations to Julie Mazzei, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Political Science (in the College of Arts and Sciences at Kent State University) for being awarded the 2021 Mid American Conference (MAC) Outstanding Faculty Award for Student Success. Mazzei is one of only 12 institutional winners for the award given out to recognize the outstanding efforts of MAC faculty to support and develop students both inside and outside of the classroom.
Mazzei teaches our graduate courses on human rights, political violence and development. At the undergraduate level, she teaches sections of our World Politics and Comparative Politics courses, as well as the upper-division Human Rights and Social Justice, Politics of Development, and Latin American Politics courses. She also periodically teaches the Senior Seminar, focusing on political violence.
This student-focused award is distinguishable from academic or research-based awards as it celebrates the commitment of the MAC to a holistic student experience and the creation of an environment that supports success in school and in life.
Eligibility for this award is broad in nature in an effort to identify a wide range of outstanding means by which faculty are significantly impacting students, and to create an opportunity to recognize the various ways that student success is supported within the MAC. It is the hope of this award that the twelve nominees represent a diverse community that demonstrate support for student success throughout their entire collegiate experience.
