Four faculty members at Kansas University have been selected as new Chancellors Club Teaching Professors, the KU Endowment Association announced Friday.
The recipients, whose selection was based on colleagues' and students' acknowledgement of outstanding teaching, are:
• Philip Barnard, a professor of English who's been in that department since 1989. He specializes in the Revolutionary Age around the turn of the 19th Century, cultural materialism and literary theory.
• Winnie Dunn, a professor of occupational therapy who came to KU in 1986 and also serves as chairwoman of the occupational therapy education department in the School of Health Professions.
• Paul Hanson, a professor of chemistry who has been at KU since 1996 and whose specialties include organic synthesis, natural product and analog synthesis and chemical libraries for biological screening.
• Jack Winerock, a professor of music who came to KU in 1973 and who concentrates on classical piano.
The KU Endowment Chancellors Club, made up of major donors to KU, established its teaching professorships in 1981. There are now 14 Chancellors Club Teaching Professors: 10 on the Lawrence campus and four at the KU Medical Center. They are funded through KU Endowment.
