Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Teaching
Teaching Medal Award Winner
Gerald D. Browne
During his 27 years on Kauai Community College faculty, Assistant Professor of English Gerald D. Browne taught a variety of literary courses, including first-year composition, developmental writing, survey of British literature and Japanese literature in translation.
Until his retirement in June 2005, he was a long-time member of the written communication and composition directors committees.
Browne believes that the teaching/learning process is a joyful enterprise that helps us develop more fully as human beings. A student commented, "He was always so knowledgeable about each author; he spoke as if he knew them, and in turn you felt more connected to them."
The Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Teaching is awarded by the Board of Regents as tribute to faculty members who exhibit an extraordinary level of subject mastery and scholarship, teaching effectiveness and creativity and personal values that benefit students. The board also awards the Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Research.
