Dr. Monica VanKlompenberg was awarded the On-campus Professional Track Faculty Excellence Award on Wednesday, May 15th at the 2019 State of the College Awards & Service Recognition Ceremony. 

Dr. VanKlompenberg joined the department of Animal and Avian Sciences (ANSC) as a lecturer in August 2016 and has continually gone above and beyond expectations of her teaching load to expand the opportunities for experiential learning and career development for students. Over the last six semesters, Monica has developed or substantially redesigned eight courses and has demonstrated a profound commitment to excellence in teaching. In designing and delivering these courses, she has focused on student-centered learning approaches with elements of active learning. Most notably, she has redeveloped the Applied Animal Physiology Lecture and Lab which are foundational courses in ANSC's curriculum.

In addition to her teaching and academic advising, Monica has sought to improve the undergraduate experience for ANSC students. In July 2017 she led the organization and hosting of the National Animal Science Academic Quadrathlon working with the American Society of Animal Science. She also serves as the advisor to the Block and Brindle Club (B&B), where she has helped the club rebuild. Monica is truly an asset to ANSC's students, rising above the call of duty in many ways.

VanKlompenberg accepts her award.
