An immunologist who teaches animal science and studies immune regulation in mammals is the University of North Carolina Board of Governors’ choice for the 2018 Excellence in Teaching Award for North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.
Radiah C. Minor, an associate professor in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, was chosen for the prestigious annual award along with faculty representing each of the other 16 campuses in the UNC System. The winners were recognized for bringing “innovative and creative teaching methods and approaches, which make a real difference in how students learn,” said UNC Board of Governors Chair Lou Bissette.
A Ph.D. graduate of Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Minor joined the faculty of North Carolina A&T in 2008. She has made her mark as a hands-on instructor, who “makes sure students get practical experience, as well as professional development and training,” said interim College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences Dean Shirley Hymon-Parker.
