Acknowledged for her “commitment to excellence in the classroom,” along with “compelling” and profound support from her colleagues and students, McIntire Professor Sherri Moore has been honored with a 2021 All-University Teaching Award.
Moore’s longstanding generosity and extraordinary talents as a professor earn her a $3,000 award, as well as recognition during a virtual celebratory event scheduled for an as-yet unspecified date in the coming weeks. As one of nine professors from six schools to be bestowed with the distinction by UVA’s Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost, Moore represents the School of Commerce in response to the office’s annual call for nominations.
A beloved figure on Grounds, Moore decided to become a professor after serving as a trial lawyer for 20 years, joining the McIntire faculty in 2010. In addition to teaching Commercial Law with the strength of experience she brings from two decades in her former profession, she is known for her approachability to her students, as well as for her own story of resilience in the face of significant personal loss, a lesson she shares with her classes each semester during her “Last Lecture.”
