Recognized for his “transcendent impact” on students, McIntire Professor of Management David Lehman has been honored with a 2016 All-University Teaching Award. One of nine professors across five UVA schools to receive the award, Lehman, along with the other honorees, was officially recognized at an April 27, 2016, banquet, held in Alumni Hall.
The Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost issues a call for nominations for the annual awards each fall. The winners received cash grants of $2,000 to work on teaching projects.
A student of organizational learning and authenticity, Lehman was praised by those who nominated him for challenging assumptions about behavior and using innovative methods to illustrate his concepts.
“David is an extraordinary teacher inside and outside the classroom who brings vision and foresight to curriculum development in ways that greatly benefit McIntire students and faculty,” says Management Professor and Management Area Coordinator Adelaide Wilcox King. “He connects to his students so well because of his deep knowledge, creative approaches, and strong commitment to each individual’s success.”
Lehman, who joined McIntire’s faculty in 2012, teaches “Organizational Behavior” in the undergraduate program’s Integrated Core Experience. He also leads the Southeast Asia track of the M.S. in Commerce Program’s Global Immersion Experience.
