2008 Faculty Award for Excellence in Scholarship« Back to 2008 Recipients
Professor of Social Change and Development (History)
In just 11 years at UW-Green Bay, Andy Kersten has become a model for scholarly activity. He already has published six books (with another on the way), many of them earning critical acclaim. Count about 40 articles, chapters, or encyclopedia entries, and about 30 book reviews to his long list of professional accomplishments, as well. Recognized nationally for his expertise on labor history, the law and race relations in 20th century America, Andy is also an excellent teacher. In fact, just last year he received the Founders Award for Teaching.
Keeping his students connected to the community is a priority, and recent projects involving Kersten and his classes with the Neville Public Museum and National Railroad Museum are wonderful examples of how community connections are benefiting students and the greater community.
