Lerman-Neubauer Prize for Excellence in Teaching and Mentoring
The Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer '69 and Joseph Neubauer Prize for Excellence in Teaching and Mentoring honors an individual — typically a tenure, full-time faculty member — who is involved in the cocurricular and extracurricular life of the campus and, more importantly, has had a significant impact on students' lives as an exceptional teacher, mentor, adviser and friend.
The $5,000 prize is presented annually at the April faculty meeting.
Faculty, staff, students, and alumni are invited to submit nominations. The recipient is selected by the Dean of Arts and Sciences upon the recommendation of a committee that includes two students appointed by the Student Union and two previous Lerman-Neubauer recipients in consultation with the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Decisions are based on nomination letters, teaching evaluations, Faculty Activity Reports and CVs. Nominations are due in March 1, 2023.
Professor of Anthropology
- "Prof. McIntosh's passion for the subject is visible and contagious. It personally made me want to read and know more than was required for her class and go to office hours to discuss what I had learned and what I wanted to understand better. Her class also made me seriously consider Anthropology as my future major."
- "I haven't seen such openness, receptivity, and humility from a teacher before. The feeling that is left is that she actively looks for ways to make the experience better and to make the class and learning experience best for us.... I recommend anyone to take a class with Janet. She inspires me to be better."
- "Janet is an excellent professor. She is incredibly patient and encouraging, and I’ve often seen her help people to better understand their own ideas without any hint of harshness or criticism. I am a better scholar because of Janet McIntosh."
