Book of Great Teachers honorees
Please join me in congratulating six outstanding College of Liberal Arts faculty members for being selected for induction into the Purdue University Book of Great Teachers.
Professors Dorsey Armstrong (English), Carol Cunningham-Sigman (Design, Art, and Performance), Melanie Morgan (Communication), Leigh Raymond (Political Science), Anthony Silva (English), and John Sundquist (Languages and Cultures) were among the 45 faculty members honored at a Dec. 11 induction ceremony at the Purdue Memorial Union's South Ballroom.
The Book of Great Teachers, which recognizes sustained excellence in teaching and scholarship, is among the most notable internal honors for Purdue’s finest educators. The nomination process for the honor occurs every five years, with the last induction ceremony being held in 2013.
Purdue's Book of Great Teachers was dedicated in 1999, and 384 distinguished faculty members have been recognized since then. The College of Liberal Arts has had more than 70 professors inducted. Each faculty member’s name is listed on a permanent bronze-and-walnut display in the PMU's west foyer.
Congratulations, Book of Great Teachers honorees!

College of Liberal Arts
Since my introduction to Purdue Liberal Arts, I have been impressed by the depth and volume of accomplishment among members of the faculty and staff. To that end, this series will celebrate the achievements of our colleagues. When one of us earns recognition, it reflects positively upon each individual, each department, the whole of the College, and the entirety of the University. Collectively, we all benefit from the success of our colleagues, and here, together, we will celebrate the accolades that move this College to new heights of excellence.
