Levenson Receives Prize for Excellence in Teaching

Marya R. Levenson, professor of the practice in education and the Harry S. Levitan Director of Education, received the 2008 Louis Dembitz Brandeis Prize for Excellence in Teaching. The prize honors an individual who is involved in the co-curricular and extra-curricular life of the campus, and more importantly, has had a significant impact on students' lives as an exceptional teacher, mentor, adviser and friend.

Each year since 1986, Brandeis students, faculty and alumni have been invited to nominate outstanding faculty for this prize. Those who nominated Levenson wrote: "Although there are certainly many other professors at Brandeis who are passionate about their subject matter, what makes Professor Levenson unique is that she embodies the essence of education in her relationships with students both inside and outside the classroom."
