“She is loved by students and respected by her colleagues for her dynamic classroom presence, loving demeanor and Christ-like attitude,” Provost Edwin Estevez told the audience.

He quoted a sampling of students praising Amundson’s high standards of excellence and loving heart, for instance:

  • “Dr. Amundson works to create a safer, kinder world by educating students in what it means to be tolerant and inclusive, not only in the classroom, but in their lives.”
  • “Dr. Amundson’s passion for her discipline comes from a deep commitment to Christ and the call to be peacemakers and ‘Kingdom-bringers’ in the world.”

Recipients of the Outstanding Faculty Award demonstrate passion for their disciplines and cultivate meaningful connections with students. They evidence strong Christian commitment, actively integrate faith with learning and exhibit high expectations for excellence in the classroom.
