David Schultz, professor of political science in Hamline’s College of Liberal Arts, has won the Leslie A. Whittington Excellence in Teaching Award. This national teaching award, given to one professor per year by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA), recognizes professors who make outstanding contributions to public policy education over a sustained period of time, as determined by other public affairs faculty.  Schultz was nominated for the award by several of his students.  A letter from the NASPAA announcing the award highlighted Schultz’s “continued and selfless dedication to advancing public service education through teaching excellence and commitment to student achievement.”
