This year, The Department of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies has compiled a forward-facing annual report for the 2021-2022 academic year. This report documents much of the work and craft that TDPS faculty, staff, and students put into the program.
Noe Montez has been elected Vice President for Publications for the American Society for Theatre Research beginning in 2022.
Congratulations to all the 2022 TDPS graduates! Their vibrancy and resilience made the department brighter, and we know they will continue to bring that ingenuity and tenacity wherever they go next. You can see them and some of the work they've done over the past four years in our 2022 Senior Slideshow.
Kareem Khubchandani is the winner of the Recognition of Undergraduate Teaching Excellence (ROUTE) Award, which recognizes distinguished teaching, advising, and mentoring by tenure-track members of the Faculty of Arts, Sciences and Engineering. This award is specifically intended for untenured (but tenure-track) full-time faculty members who demonstrate excellence in teaching and advising, show concern for their students' academic and personal growth, and who convey a passion and enthusiasm for their field of study. We are so thrilled for him and grateful for all he does for TDPS.
