University teaching awards. Professor Michelle Robinson recently received Carolina’s Excellence in Teaching award – and organized an enthusiastically received symposium on American humor. Two members of the tenured faculty have been awarded Chapman Family Teaching Awards for outstanding teaching in the past (Marr, Willis). Many present faculty members have been awarded one of the campus-wide teaching awards (Allen, Cobb, M. Ferris, Marr, Willis, Herman). Faculty research is supported institutionally through several important fellowship programs. Present department colleagues (as well as others who have retired or moved) have won research fellowships from the Institute for the Arts and Humanities (IAH) (Cobb, Gura, , Hinson, Joy Kasson, Marr, Sawin, Willis), Bowman and Gordon Gray Distinguished Term Professorships (Marr, Willis), service support provided by the Mellon Foundation (Allen), and year-long research fellowships at the National Humanities Center in Research Triangle Park (Allen and Marr). The College and department also fund regular Research & Study Assignments that include semester leaves for tenure-track professors at the Assistant and Associate levels to pursue their research agendas on the path to promotion.
