St. Edward's faculty member receives 2001 Distinguished Teaching Award

St. Edward's University presented Barbara Cassidy, professor of accounting, with the 2001 Distinguished Teaching Award for exceptional teaching and dedicated service to St. Edward's University.

The selection process included classroom observations by peer faculty, a letter of support from department dean, course evaluation from students and various teaching materials that characterize the St. Edward's experience and mission while meeting the educational needs of our diverse student population.

Cassidy is a certified public accountant and personal financial specialist. She is a professor of accounting, accounting program coordinator and assistant dean for The School of Business Administration. She has been elected and appointed to numerous university committees and serves as a volunteer for student recruitment, retention, advising, and graduation events. Cassidy's lobbying efforts resulted in a formal university policy to ban credit card company solicitations on the St. Edward's campus. She is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants-State and Austin Chapter.

St. Edward's University is an independent Catholic liberal arts university of 3,800 students in Austin. It was founded by the Congregation of Holy Cross.
