English Professor Price Named 2023 Great Teacher

April 28, 2023

ALLIANCE – The University of Mount Union is proud to announce that Dr. Andrew Price, professor of English and chair of the Department of Literature and Communication Arts, was named its Great Teacher for 2023.

Price has been a member of the Mount Union faculty since 1990 and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from St. Anselm College, and Master of Arts and Doctoral degrees in English from the University of Notre Dame. 

One student nominator said that Price, “…has been very supportive and helpful to me during my college experience and as I make the transition to graduate school. I have had the privilege of taking four classes he has taught. In each course, I have felt challenged not only academically, but also personally as I considered my own values as well as the values of society.”

The Great Teacher Award was initiated in 1962 and is sponsored by the Mount Union Alumni Association to recognize excellence in teaching – the foundation upon which the reputation of the University of Mount Union has been built.
