Johnstone recognized through President’s Council Teaching Award

Peter Johnstone, Ph.D., a professor in HPS’ Criminal Justice Department, has been selected as the recipient of the 2017 President’s Council Teaching Award.  

“I am very pleased to receive this award,” said Johnstone. “For me it represents an endorsement of my attempts to be effective by the colleagues I work with on a daily basis. I am aware that many of them would be more worthy recipients than I.”

The $3,000 award was established to recognize annually two full‑time, tenured/tenure‑track faculty members for a record of teaching excellence at the University of North Texas over at least a five-year period. Johnstone will be recognized at the Salute to Faculty Excellence Dinner and Ceremony in the fall semester of 2017.
