School of Business Professor Steven Ullmann Honored with UM’s Outstanding Teaching Award
March 10, 2011
Steven G. Ullmann, a professor of management and economics and director of Programs in Health Sector Management and Policy at the School of Business is among three top faculty members who are being honored among the University’s best. Ullmann, who has been with the School since 1979, will receive the Outstanding Teaching Award from the Faculty Senate in a ceremony March 29. The award recognizes outstanding teaching by a faculty member with a substantial record of teaching at the University.
Ullmann specializes in the areas of health care management and health economics and was the academic director for the University’s Global Business Forum in January, which drew more than 700 people to campus including the U.S. secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, the chairman and CEO of General Electric and numerous other top government and business leaders as speakers and panelists.
Ullmann has received more than two dozen awards for excellence in teaching since coming to the UM and has served on the governing and ethics boards of a number of health care providers and consulted for the health care industry. He is frequently interviewed by and serves as a commentator for local and national media including CNN, Nightly Business Report, and Fox Business News, among others.
This year’s other two Faculty Senate award winners are Richard J. Thurer, the B. and Donald Carlin Professor of Thoracic Surgical Oncology at the Miller School of Medicine, who will receive the James W. McLamore Outstanding Service Award and Charles S. Carver, a professor of psychology in the College of Arts and Sciences, who will receive the Distinguished Faculty Scholar.
In 2009, Anita Cava, an associate professor of business law at the School of Business, co-director of UM Ethics Programs and director of the Business Ethics Program, received the Faculty Senate’s Outstanding Teaching Award and that same year, Yadong Luo, the School’s Emery Findley Distinguished Chair and professor of management, received the Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award.
