Five Jesuit colleges and universities have 16 of the country’s best undergraduate teachers according to The Princeton Review. The Massachusetts-based education services company profiled 16 professors from Loyola University Chicago, Loyola Marymount University, Loyola University New Orleans, Georgetown University and Santa Clara University in its new book, The Best 300 Professors.
Published April 3, 2012, The Best 300 Professors book was developed by The Princeton Review in conjunction with RateMyProfessors.com–the highest trafficked college professor ratings site in the U.S. The book’s impressive roster of top teachers features professors in more than 60 fields ranging from accounting to neuroscience to sport management. They hail from 122 colleges and universities across the nation. Among them are: John M. Janiga, accounting; Brad Elliott Stone, philosophy; Barrett Tilney, art history; Robert Winsor, marketing; Curtis Bennett, mathematics; Peter Burns, political science; Connie Fletcher, journalism; Hector Campos, foreign language; Megan Granich, mathematics; Matthew Carnes, government; Arthur Gross-Schaefer; business law; Laurie Poe, mathematics; Sam Potolicchio, American politics; B.M. Lavelle, classical studies; Kathleen M. Adams, anthropology; and Jacqueline Scott, philosophy.
“The news of being included on this list came as a surprise, and has prompted me to reflect back on the wonderful teachers and mentors I have had over the years,” said Kathleen M. Adams, professor of anthropology at Loyola University Chicago. “I feel lucky to have the terrific students I have at Loyola, and to work amidst so many creative and inspiring teachers. The list should be far longer.”
The selection process took into account qualitative and quantitative data from survey findings and ratings collected by both The Princeton Review and RateMyProfessors.com. The professors featured in the book are a truly select group: from an initial list of 42,000 professors considered, the final group of “best” professors chosen constitutes less than 2 percent of the roughly 1.8 million post-secondary teachers instructing students at colleges and universities across the U.S. The professors in the book are not ranked (nor are their colleges ranked in this book) but each professor profiled received high ratings from their most important audiences, beneficiaries and critics: the students they teach and inspire.
