Ruth Economou, Part-Time Lecturer, Human Services Program and School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs.

With this award, the college recognizes Ruth Economou’s commitment to students experiencing the theory, practice, skill, and reflection in her counseling courses. The committee was impressed with Professor Economou’s ability to act as a leader when faced with difficult questions of the day and to help students slow things down to find starting points when faced with complex interactions. She excels in teaching her students how to empathize and listen, and her desire to provide her students with a space to reflect serves as an important pedagogic tool in educating our next generation of counselors.

Please join us in congratulating the winners!
