Lewis Recognized as Outstanding Teacher
In June, Jennifer Lewis received the Outstanding Career Achievement in Teaching by a Lecturer award from the College of Liberal Arts.
A graduate of the Cal Poly Social Sciences Department (B.S., Social Sciences, 1993), Lewis earned her doctorate in anthropology from the New School University in New York City and began teaching at Cal Poly in 2004. Lewis’ award nomination highlighted her rigorous approach to education, exceptionally high teaching evaluation scores, and strong commitment to students. Her nomination was supported by letters from seven students, all of whom considered Lewis one of the best instructors they had at Cal Poly.
