Recognized for Teaching Excellence. As Top 25 Woman Professor
When it comes to academic excellence, Dr. Mary Beth Klinger is rated among the highest in her field. Not only has she been honored by her peers with the College of Southern Maryland’s Faculty Excellence Award, but also Klinger has been recognized by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) with the 2013 Teaching Excellence Award for the Eastern Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP Region 2) as well as by Online Schools Maryland as one of its Top 25 Women Professors.
“We couldn’t be more proud of Dr. Klinger being recognized for the academic excellence she provides her students each and every day. She reflects the commitment to excellence that is demonstrated by CSM’s faculty, encouraging our students to attain their goals, both in the classroom and in life. Our students overwhelmingly describe our professors as available, helpful and sympathetic, and Dr. Klinger is one example of this commitment to promoting student success and helping students become involved and engaged in the process of their own learning,” said CSM President Dr. Brad Gottfried.
The ACBSP recognizes individuals annually from each of its 10 regions who exemplify teaching excellence in the classroom. Klinger will be honored, along with other regional recipients, at the 2013 ACBSP Annual Conference, June 21-24 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
