Professor of Philosophy Rebecca “Becko” Copenhaver named Teacher of the Year
April 29, 2013
On April 17, students named Rebecca “Becko” Copenhaver, professor of philosophy, Teacher of the Year. The student committee charged with selecting the teacher of the year chose Copenhaver based on the quality of the nomination letters submitted by students.
The Teacher of the Year award has been bestowed on faculty by the undergraduate student body since 1993. The award process is student driven. Each year, the Pamplin Society asks all Lewis & Clark students to submit nominations. A selection committee chooses several finalists and then requests additional student input. After debate and deliberation, the committee selects a winner.
A residential liberal arts college with a global reach, Lewis & Clark is the ideal location for exploring the wider world and your place in it. Nestled among towering trees in a neighborhood just six miles from downtown Portland, Oregon, our campus is perfectly situated for students who want to explore both unspoiled natural environments and a thriving metropolitan area.
