Elaine Williams Domian, clinical associate professor at the University of Kansas School of Nursing, has been named the recipient of the 2014 Phyllis Keeney Lawrence Teaching Award.
Domian, the 17th recipient of the annual award, will be acknowledged at this year's KU School of Nursing Recognition Ceremony on Saturday, May 17.
Karen Miller, senior vice chancellor for academic and student affairs at the University of Kansas Medical Center and dean of the KU School of Nursing, shared the Steering Committee's decision with faculty and staff Monday. "Congratulations Elaine on being an inspiring educator," she said.
The Phyllis Keeney Lawrence Teaching Award is given to a faculty member who demonstrates a superior record of teaching performance, makes significant contribution to curriculum development, and utilizes innovative approaches in teaching.
The award was established in honor of Lawrence, a 1990 KU School of Nursing graduate, following her death. Her parents recalled their daughter saying, "Nurses will only be as good as the teachers from whom they learn."
