As part of its 20th anniversary celebration in 2011, CEU established the European Award for Excellence in Teaching in the Social Sciences and Humanities. The first and only pan-European teaching award, it was created to emphasize the importance of teaching within European higher education, where research tends to dominate. At CEU’s opening ceremony on Sept. 14, President and Rector John Shattuck presented the inaugural award to Dr. Eleanor Denny, an assistant professor of economics at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.
