Warren receives UW System’s 2009 Regents Teaching Excellence Award
Dôna Warren, associate professor of philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, was selected by the UW System Board of Regents as one of two outstanding teachers to receive the 2009 Regents Teaching Excellence Award. Warren was chosen from among her peers across the entire UW System. She is the eighth faculty member and/or department at UWSP to receive this honor since the awards inception in 1993.
Warren was nominated for the award by her colleagues in philosophy and chosen from a group of select nominees by a special UW Regent committee, chaired by Regent Danae Davis. Award recipients are singled out for their strong commitment to teaching and learning, use of effective teaching strategies to enhance student learning, and for having significant impact on students’ intellectual development.
Warren’s areas of specialization are critical thinking, symbolic logic, and philosophy of religion.
She received the UWSP Excellence in Teaching Award in 1998. The student body nominated her for the UWSP Excellence in Teaching Award in both 2005 and 2007. Her peers at UWSP also nominated her for the UW System Regents Teaching Excellence Award in 2000.
Warren has authored multiple articles in juried professional journals and is writing critical thinking and symbolic logic textbooks. She has hosted four critical thinking conferences on campus and created numerous online, multimedia, and interactive lessons.
