Oregon Law professor receives UO Fund for Faculty Excellence Award
Michelle McKinley is among 13 UO faculty members chosen for award
Oregon Law Associate Professor Michelle McKinley is among the 13 outstanding members of the University of Oregon faculty who have been selected to receive the Fund for Faculty Excellence Awards for AY 2012-13.
The Fund for Faculty Excellence is designed to support the university’s strategic commitment to enhancing academic quality and reputation by supporting, recognizing, and retaining world-class faculty. The recipients of this honor are chosen on the basis of their standing and impact within their respective fields or disciplines, their contributions to program and institutional quality at the UO, and their academic leadership.
This is yet another honor added to Professor McKinley’s burgeoning list of awards and recognitions at Oregon Law. Since joining the faculty in 2007, McKinley has garnered an Oregon Humanities Center Research Fellowship, a Wayne Morse Residential Fellowship, two awards from the American Philosophical Society, a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities, a Newberry Library Fellowship, and the 2011 Surrency Prize.
Earlier this year, the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) awarded Professor McKinley a fellowship for July 2012-May 2013. The prestigious, and competitive, ACLS Fellowship is awarded to researchers in all disciplines of humanities and related social sciences.
During the 2012-13 academic year, Professor McKinley also will serve as the law school’s associate dean for faculty development.
