Outstanding Teachers, Mentors, Innovators
Four professors have been named MIT's 2012 MacVicar Faculty Fellows for their outstanding undergraduate teaching, mentoring and educational innovation. Three are from SHASS: William Broadhead, the Class of 1954 Career Development Associate Professor of History; David Kaiser, the Germeshausen Professor of the History of Science; and Nancy Lin Rose, the Charles P. Kindleberger Professor of Applied Economics. The fourth professor honored is Leslie Pack Kaelbling, the Panasonic Professor of Computer Science and Engineering.
Speaking of the SHASS faculty, Deborah Fitzgerald, Kenan Sahin Dean of the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, observed, "David Kaiser, Nancy Rose, and Will Broadhead truly embody the values and character of our educational mission. Their deep commitment to MIT students is well-known, and their individual abilities to inspire students is key to their success. Teaching the skills of critical thinking and analysis, and appreciating the complexity of the human condition, is what our work at SHASS is all about, and what these professors do so brilliantly."
