The University of Texas System Board of Regents will once again recognize exceptional UT educators who best exemplify excellence, innovation and commitment to student success, including two from UT Permian Basin.

The two from UTPB are Stephanie Fife, a lecturer in the psychology program, and Jason Lagapa, associate professor of English.

The 2019 Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award will be presented to 27 faculty members from all 14 UT academic and health institutions during the Board of Regents meeting Aug. 14 in Austin. Each recipient will receive a certificate, a medallion and $25,000 in appreciation of their impact on students and their institutions.
