Silver Circles honor students’ choice for top teachers
Since 1966, the Silver Circle Award has been presented to some of UIC’s best teachers. Winners, who are honored at their college commencements, receive $500 and their names join a long list of distinguished colleagues.
But what makes the award especially meaningful is its selection committee: the graduating seniors.
This year’s winners are:
Michael J. Anderson, choral and vocal studies
Mary Brown, finance
Corey Capers, history and African-American studies
Sandra Gibbons, biological sciences
Larry Grimm, psychology
Saeed Manafzadeh, mechanical and industrial engineering
Jane Marone, kinesiology and nutrition
Ronald Pavone, psychology
Catherine Tredway, nursing
Maria Varelas, education
Valerie Werner, urban and public affairs
Sloan Williams, anthropology
