University of Windsor professor Veronika Mogyorody has been named to the 3M National Teaching Fellowship in recognition of excellence in university teaching and educational leadership.

The honour was bestowed by the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, and recognized Dr. Mogyorody’s vast experience and profound commitment to making university environments enticing and functional for both teachers and students

The society called Mogyorody “an educational space-maker.”

Mogyorody is also the University of Windsor’s architectural academic advisor, and has played leading role in imagining learning spaces for seven new campus buildings.

She was also instrumental in the creation the Visual Arts and the Built Environment (VABE) program, a unique international collaboration with the University of Detroit Mercy combining visual arts and architecture. Among previous accolades, she won the society’s Brightspace Innovation Award in Teaching and Learning in 2015, and a meritorious service award from the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences in 2012.

“She has an extraordinary ability to see the student, the classroom, the academic program, and the professor-student relationship as all contributing to the teaching and learning experience,” said UWindsor president Alan Wildeman. “It is wonderful to have another UWindsor professor receive national recognition.”
