Three Harvard teachers honoured

Teacher Insights

Three faculty have been named recipients of the 2019 Fannie Cox Prize for Excellence in Science Teaching. Stephanie Pierce, the Thomas D. Cabot Associate Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology; John Shaw, the Harry C. Dudley Professor of Structural and Economic Geology and professor of environmental science and engineering; and Joseph Blitzstein, professor of the practice in statistics, are the winners of the annual award, which recognizes exceptional teaching in introductory science courses.

The prize, made possible by a gift from alumnus Gardner Hendrie ’54, comes with a $10,000 personal award — plus an additional $40,000 for ladder faculty in unrestricted support for teaching and research). Peter Huybers, professor of earth and planetary sciences and of environmental science and engineering, led the faculty committee awarding the prize.
