More Kansas University faculty have received the $5,000 Kemper Awards given for excellence in teaching and advising.
The latest winners are James Hartman, English professor; Edward Scanlon, associate professor of social welfare; and Greg Simpson, professor of psychology and acting associate dean in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Twenty professors in all will be honored and $100,000 in total distributed. The KU "surprise patrol" will give out more awards through Aug. 29.
The W.T. Kemper Fellowships for Teaching Excellence recognize outstanding teachers and advisers at KU as determined by a seven-member selection committee.
Now in their 10th year, the awards were established by a $500,000 fund from the William T. Kemper Foundation-Commerce Bank, Trustee, and $500,000 in matching funds from the KU Endowment Association.
