William Condee and Thomas Carpenter, Charles J. Ping Professor of Humanities, received $40,000 from the Konneker Fund for Learning and Discovery Endowment to fund, "Toward an Ohio University Teaching Academy," a program that pairs tenured professors known for their excellence in teaching with untenured professors with the goal of raising the profile and quality of undergraduate teaching at OHIO. The program is an initiative of the Ping Institute for the Teaching of the Humanities and honors the already established Bruning Teaching Academy, created in 2005 in University College by former Provost James Bruning and his wife Marlene. Participating faculty will be known as Bruning Teaching Fellows and support from the Konneker Fund will serve as a bridge for securing future funding from national sources for this initiative. The program aims to pair five tenured faculty with five non-tenured faculty in its first year.
