Peter Sheldon, Advertising, has been named one of three finalists for the first AEJMC Advertising Division Distinguished Teaching Award. The winner will be announced at the AEJMC conference in August.


College of Media Interim Dean Jan Slater commented, “The Advertising Division of AEJMC is the most prestigious teaching organization in the discipline.  This is a tremendous honor for Peter to be a finalist – however, I am not surprised. He embodies the characteristics required of this award. Peter is an incredibly dedicated and enthusiastic teacher.  He knows how to engage students so they become collaborators at all levels and he uses innovative activities to help them learn to be strategic thinkers and build their creative confidence.”
