Dr. McLean Receives Presidential Fellowship for Excellence in Teaching

Dr. Cheryl A. McLean was selected to receive a Presidential Fellowships for Teaching Excellence, which recognizes newly tenured faculty members for outstanding teaching and scholarly work. Her teaching and research explore approaches to creating learning communities that better support the diverse learning styles, backgrounds, and interests of adolescent learners. Dr. McLean was honored for using the classroom as a laboratory that promotes greater student learning through critical and inquiry-based instruction, and for methods that make learning relevant to students’ lives.

Dr. McLean, along with several other members of the university community, were honored during a May 7 reception at the Rutgers Visitor Center for their outstanding contributions in the classroom, to their disciplines, or for the benefit of the community or world.
