2020 Award Recipients

Beau Boudreaux (HUMA)

“Dr. Boudreaux is a very patient, kind and thorough instructor. He helped me in understanding how to approach the writing class and walked me through my first essay. He is very approachable and very clear as to what he expects from the students. I was amazed at how easily things were for me as I hadn't been in a classroom setting in years. I have had many great instructors since I've been here at Tulane, but Beau Boudreaux always stands out.”

ENGL 1010 Writing

Lauren Dunaway (KINE—Online)

“Professor Dunaway's course was my favorite so far. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the health equity and the determinants of health, and her confidence in the subject material showed in class…Professor Dunaway created a safe space for me and my fellow classmates to share our thoughts and experiences. She pushed me to think outside the box and supported me when I had questions about class assignments. All coursework was thoughtfully assigned (nothing seemed like busy work), and I have used resources that I learned about in her class for later courses. All in all, she's a great professor who deserves to be recognized with this award.”
