These faculty are being recognized for their outstanding records in teaching, service and leadership
Five non-tenure-track faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder have been named teaching professors of distinction, the college has announced.
These teaching professors, who range from historians to biologists, are being recognized with the college’s highest honor for their exemplary teaching and participation in the university community. They were chosen by their peers and confirmed by previous teaching professors of distinction.
This year’s winners are:
- Christy Fillman, Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology (MCDB)
- Pamela Harvey, MCDB
- Ruth Heisler, integrative physiology
- John Keller, astrophysical and planetary sciences and Fiske Planetarium

“Professors Fillman, Harvey, Heisler, Keller and Paradis all exemplify faculty who are not only devoted to their students and learning, but who are constantly exploring new ways to reach their students,” said Bud Coleman, the college’s associate dean of faculty affairs and initiatives.
“The College of Arts and Sciences is proud of our faculty, and we want to reward and acknowledge excellence in Teaching. CU Boulder is a Tier 1 Research Institution that also embraces the ideal of being Tier 1 in Teaching.”
