International Programs Mentor David Star-Glass honored by University of Maryland University College

David Starr-Glass, a mentor in business administration with International Programs in Prague, received two significant teaching and faculty recognitions from the University of Maryland University College.

Starr-Glass is a part-time adjunct faculty member with the Europe Division of UMUC, teaching online distance learning courses in management predominantly to learners who are service members of the U.S. military. This summer, at the conclusion of the 2012-2013 academic year, he was one of three faculty members of UMUC Europe to receive the university’s prestigious Teaching Recognition Award. The annual award includes a certificate, plaque and honorarium.

The citation reads: "As a recipient of a Teaching Recognition Award, you have demonstrated a consistent record of teaching excellence. You also have set and maintained high academic standards for your students. Moreover, your commitment to the university has extended beyond the classroom and has included collaboration with colleagues on committees and discipline-specific initiatives. In sum, your service to the university and to higher education has been exemplary."

He also was awarded UMUC’s Certificate of Recognition for Notable Scholarly Activity in Professional Publications for multiple peer-reviewed articles published during 2012-2013 academic year. This is the third time that he has been privileged to receive this certificate in the last three years.

About SUNY Empire State College

Students engage in guided independent study and course work onsite, online or a combination of both, which provides the flexibility for students to learn at the time, place and pace they choose.

Its 70,000 alumni are active in their communities as entrepreneurs, politicians, business professionals, artists, nonprofit agency employees, teachers, veterans and active military, union members and more.
