Dr. Lawrence Cappello Wins Outstanding Commitment to Teaching Award

Lawrence CappelloAssistant Professor Lawrence Cappello‘s excellence in teaching and learning has been recognized by The University of Alabama Alumni Association’s 2021 Outstanding Commitment to Teaching Award.

Cappello is an assistant professor of U.S. Legal and Constitutional History and directs our Legal History concentration.

The Outstanding Commitment to Teaching Award program began approximately forty-five years ago, when The University of Alabama National Alumni Association created an annual program to recognize four UA faculty members who demonstrate an “Outstanding Commitment to Teaching.” The award is based upon the faculty member’s commitment to teaching and the impact they have had on students through the teaching and learning process. Full-time faculty members may be nominated by alumni, faculty, and/or students, with the selection committee composed of the same. The official award presentation will be held this fall.

Winners receive a plaque and a cash stipend.

Congratulations, Dr. Cappello!
