Steven Schlossman Wins College’s Top Teaching Award

By Sarah Gutekunst (DC'17)

Steven Schlossman, professor of history and director of undergraduate studies, has won the 2016-17 Elliott Dunlap Smith Award for Distinguished Teaching and Educational Service in the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences.

"I am truly honored to receive the 2017 Elliott Dunlap Smith Award," said Schlossman. "The award reflects the very high standard of creative teaching, as well as research, that the entire History Department faculty has stood for since my arrival on campus in 1988."

Since joining Carnegie Mellon University, Schlossman has distinguished himself as a scholar in a wide range of social and political history studies including homework in American schooling, juvenile courts and delinquency and the rise of modern golf. He also helped to co-found the ethics, history and public policy major, offered jointly with the Department of Philosophy.
