Greg Stewart, professor of management and entrepreneurship and the Mary H. Bell Chair in Leadership, received a 2018 President and Provost Award for Teaching Excellence in recognition of his years of outstanding teaching.

Stewart is an expert in the study of team science and has taught classes and developed training sessions on this topic at various levels for more than 16 years. Having taught in the undergraduate, Executive MBA, and Ph.D. programs, he is the college’s most sought-after instructor for executive education to external constituents and for interdisciplinary programs.

“Based on the totality of his record, I give my strongest recommendation to Professor Greg Stewart as one of the Tippie College’s exceptional educators,” wrote Amy Kristof-Brown, Henry B. Tippie Research Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship senior associate dean, in her recommendation. “He brings research-based evidence into all of his classroom settings, and connects with students both inside and outside the classroom. He produces learning that is instantly applicable in work settings, and in the development of skill sets that new managers will take into their workplaces.”

This makes two years in a row that a Tippie faculty member has received the award — Thomas Gruca, the Henry B. Tippie Research Professor of Marketing, received one last year.

The award, which is administered by the UI Council on Teaching, was created in 2004 and represents the highest level of achievement in teaching given at the UI. Nominations include reference to a commitment to students and compelling evidence of the nominee’s contributions to student learning and outcomes both in and outside of the classroom. Each award carries a $3,000 honorarium.
