Steven and Linda Diener Endow CEU’s European Award for Excellence in Teaching

March 11, 2014

Steven and Linda Diener have made a gift of 100,000 EUR to CEU to endow the European Award for Excellence in Teaching in the Social Sciences and Humanities, a project directed by the Center for Teaching and Learning. The Dieners’ gift will fund in perpetuity the Diener Prize—a 5,000 EUR award for outstanding university teachers of Social Sciences and Humanities at institutions in the European higher education area. The Dieners have long supported educational initiatives in Canada, and they have made this gift in honor of Steven’s mother Ilona Diener. CEU is grateful to the Dieners for their transformative support of teaching excellence.
