Pranav Anand, who is Associate Professor of Linguistics, is the 2015-16 recipient of the Dizikes Faculty Teaching Award in Humanities.
Named in honor of Professor Emeritus John Dizikes, this annual award celebrates the Humanities faculty’s commitment to excellence in teaching and its transformative impact for students. It honors the work of faculty and supports students who aspire to learning and critical thinking.
