Congratulations to Visual Communication adjunct faculty member, Melissa Dettlinger, for receiving the Adjunct Faculty Award for Excellence in Instruction for the Southern Indiana (Sellersburg) region. The Adjunct Faculty Award for Excellence in Instruction is presented annually to an adjunct faculty member from each of the fourteen regions of the College in an effort to recognize adjunct faculty who typify excellence in instruction and in representing the mission of Ivy Tech. Program Chair Susan Mackowiak says, “Dettlinger approaches her teaching style with a clear focus and great enthusiasm. Bringing an exuberant amount of energy, she engages and educates her students through her personal and professional experiences.”
Along with the other 13 regions nominees, Melissa will move forward in being considered for the statewide Gerald I. Lamkin Award for Excellence in Instruction.
