Monday, April 9, 2018

Michele Bissière from UNC Charlotte’s Department of Languages and Cultural Studies in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences is among the recipients of the 2018 UNC Board of Governors Awards for Excellence in Teaching.

This annual honor recognizes one professor from each of North Carolina’s 16 public institutions and the N.C. School of Science and Mathematics. A member of the UNC Board of Governors will present the award during the spring commencement ceremony at each UNC campus.

Since joining UNC Charlotte in 1990, Bissière, a professor of French, has made an impact. Commonly referred to as the face of French at UNC Charlotte, she has supported nearly every major department programmatic initiative of the last two decades.

An exceptional teacher, she has developed 12 courses primarily in the French curriculum, including language, advanced literature, culture, civilization and film.

Bissière also received the 2017 Bank of America Award for Teaching Excellence – one of the University’s most prestigious accolades.
