Scott Moore Named Thurnau Professor
Award recognizes, rewards faculty for contributions to undergraduate education
Scott Moore, associate professor of computer and information systems at the Michigan Business School, was one of five faculty members named to the Arthur F. Thurnau Professorship, which recognizes and rewards University of Michigan faculty for outstanding contributions to undergraduate education.
Regarded as an outstanding classroom teacher, Moore is able, through mentoring and supporting students, to make difficult subjects accessible, while maintaining challenging standards. He designs courses in which students are actively engaged in projects based on real-world examples. Students have recognized his efforts by awarding him the outstanding BBA Teacher of the Year Award twice, something that no other faculty member has accomplished.
In honoring Moore, the Board of Regents noted that he mentors new faculty on their teaching and shares with colleagues the course materials he has developed. While on sabbatical in 2003, he continued to serve on a committee to review the BBA curriculum.
The Thurnau Professorships, named after Arthur F. Thurnau, a Michigan student in 1902-1904, are supported by the Thurnau Charitable Trust established through his will. The University each year selects faculty members who are designated as Thurnau Professors for a three-year term. Each receives a $20,000 grant to support their teaching activities.
