Congratulations to Professor Megan Sweeney! She won the UCLA Distinguished Teaching Award. We knew that she was a amazing teacher but it is good to have some much deserved external appreciation as well. This is the second year in a row that the Sociology department has won one of these highly competitive teaching award. Last year, Professor Mignon Moore won the Distinguished Teaching Award for Undergraduate Mentorship.
A big thank you to Sociology vice chair for undergraduate affairs Abigail Saguy, the staff, and students for helping put Prof. Sweeney’s candidacy forward.
