Dr. Jennifer Henery named Marquette Core Curriculum Award winner

The Marquette Core Curriculum Committee is pleased to announce Dr. Jennifer Henery as the winner of the inaugural MCC Teaching Excellence Award.

A participating faculty member, Henery is a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Theology who teaches regularly in the MCC at the Foundations, Discovery and Culminating levels.

She was selected from a competitive slate of nominees for her outstanding contributions to student learning in the MCC. Her nominators, both students and colleagues, commended her inventive assignments, which “require the students to think creatively about how they will ‘be the difference’ because of their MU degree and how they can use their interdisciplinary education to propose concrete solutions to pressing problems and engage their peers in doing the same.”

The MCC Teaching Excellence Award was created in 2021 through a partnership with the Marquette Core Curriculum and the Participating Faculty Task Force. The award honor instructors whose “effective approaches to course design and delivery have an extraordinary positive impact on students’ progress toward the MCC learning outcomes.”
