Lincoln, Neb. – The Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communication (AgLEC) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will receive the university-wide departmental teaching award from the University of Nebraska, according to an announcement today from University President James B. Milliken.

The University-wide Departmental Teaching Award (UDTA) recognizes a department within the university that has made a unique and significant contribution to teaching.

AgLEC was initially established as the Department of Agricultural Education in 1918, and was merged with the Department of Agricultural Communications in 1992.

AgLEC faculty members are constantly using new technologies and teaching methods, persistently evaluating the effectiveness and comprehensiveness of their curriculum, and setting high standards for the education and training of students in undergraduate and graduate programs, according to the award nomination.

The nomination states: “This department has raised the standard of teaching excellence, distinguishing itself through notable awards and achievements…The AgLEC faculty is a highly dedicated, hard working, student-oriented faculty group that functions efficiently and effectively as a team.”

AgLEC will receive the UDTA at a ceremony on April 30 in Lincoln. The honor originated in 1993, and the recipient is selected by a committee of outstanding peers.
