The University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) and the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) proudly announce that Annette Craven, Ph.D., CPA, and DBA Program has received the 2013 ACBSP Teaching Excellence Award for the Southwestern Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP Region 6). Each year, the Council recognizes individuals from each of its 10 regions who exemplify teaching excellence in the classroom.
Craven will be honored, along with other regional recipients, at the 2013 ACBSP Annual Conference, June 21-24 in Salt Lake City, Utah, www.acbsp.org and will receive a medallion and a $100 check. She is also now a candidate for the 2013 ACBSP International Teaching Excellence Award, to be announced in June.
“My focus has always been on helping students succeed – academically and professionally. It’s an honor to be recognized with this competitive award that spans more than 8,000 members in 10 regions, including India and Europe,” said Craven.
“Dr. Craven has many years of experience in the corporate and academic environment. She goes above and beyond for her employers, colleagues and students who comment that they learned so much, not only from the course material, but from her experience, consulting projects and scholarship,” said Dr. Jeannie J. Scott, interim dean, UIW H-E-B School of Business Administration.
The Associate Degree Commission of ACBSP established the International Teaching Excellence Award in 1995 to recognize outstanding classroom teachers. In 2002, the Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Commission created a similar award to recognize excellence in teaching at the baccalaureate/graduate degree level. ACBSP is the only specialized accrediting body for business schools that presents an award recognizing excellence in teaching, open to application by the entire membership.
“It is more important than ever for business programs to produce graduates who are ready to enter the global marketplace,” said Douglas Viehland, ACBSP executive director. “ACBSP has a mission to develop, promote and recognize best practices that contribute to continuous improvement of business education. Recognition of teaching excellence is one way we achieve this goal,” he stated.
ACBSP currently has more than 1,171 member campuses in 52 countries and 10 regions.
