Chuck Barone, Professor of Economics, received the Distinguished Teaching Award. Recognizing outstanding teaching, the award is the highest honor given to a Dickinson faculty member. Barone, who received the honor at a recent faculty meeting, was described by Neil Weissman, Provost and Dean at Dickinson College, as "heterodox, pluralist, radical, and above all impactful. More than any other contribution, our awardee’s legacy lies in challenging the complacency of mainstream thinking and of convictions rooted in shallow experience and privilege. His pioneering work in developing a “contending perspectives” model has served as a cornerstone of our economics curriculum and more".
