2023 Distinguished Teaching Award Recipients

Distinguished Teaching Award

Five UC Berkeley faculty have been selected as recipients of the 2023 Distinguished Teaching Award, the campus’s most prestigious honor for teaching. The award recognizes teaching that incites intellectual curiosity in students, engages them thoroughly in the enterprise of learning, and has a lifelong impact. The Academic Senate’s Committee on Teaching has selected:

  • Laleh Behbehanian, Sociology

  • Abigail De Kosnik, Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies

  • Daniel Hoffmann, French

  • Joshua Hug, Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences

  • Elisa Tamarkin, English

The extraordinary expertise, curiosity, inclusiveness, and passion of this year’s recipients remind us that excellent teaching runs both deep and broad across Berkeley’s academic landscape.

The recipients were celebrated at a public ceremony on April 26, 2023 in Sibley Auditorium, Bechtel Engineering Center.
