Professor Alex Saragoza will be this year's recipient of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute's Excellence in Teaching and Learning award. This award is given annually to a UC Berkeley faculty member who teaches at OLLI and who has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to engaged learning, both in the classroom and in the world outside the university. As an emeritus professor of Chicano/Latino Studies, Alex Saragoza has exemplified this commitment in his teaching, organization of international travel programs, research on cultural tourism, and involvement in film projects on Mexican history.
All are welcome to join us in honoring Professor Saragoza.
Last year's recipient was Professor Daniel Kammen, Professor of Energy with appointments in the Energy and Resources Group, The Goldman School of Public Policy, and the Department of Nuclear Engineering who also serves as a Fellow of the U. S. State Department’s Energy and Climate Partnership for the Americas (ECPA).
