Distinguished Teachers

"Smith College has traditionally emphasized the importance of dynamic, diverse and interactive teaching in imparting the principles of the sciences and liberal arts to its high-achieving students," says President Carol T. Christ. "The college considers the teaching of its students to be among its most essential objectives as a leading institution of women's education." The Kathleen Compton Sherrerd '54 and John J. F. Sherrerd Prize for Distinguished Teaching is a visible symbol of Smith's commitment and dedication to superior pedagogy.
