Dr. Chad Schrock, associate professor of English, has been selected as the winner of Lee University’s 2019 Excellence in Teaching Award. Lee President Dr. Paul Conn recognized Dr. Schrock for this honor during spring commencement. 

“Since he arrived, Dr. Schrock has earned a reputation for extraordinary teaching,” said Dr. Conn. “His student evaluations are among the highest in the university, year after year.” 

Dr. Schrock has been at Lee University since 2010, specializing in early British literature. He regularly teaches classes such as Rhetoric and Research, Western Literature I: Ancient to Renaissance, Foundations of Literature in English, Senior Thesis, Chaucer, C. S. Lewis, and English in Christian Perspective. 

His first book, “Consolation in Medieval Narrative,” was published in 2015. Elsewhere he has articles published or forthcoming on literature from the eighth, 12th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Recent topics include Beowulf (English Studies), a medieval beast fable (Journal of English and Germanic Philology), Phil Rickman’s mystery novel series (Christianity & Literature), and Chaucer’s Miller’s Tale (Modern Language Review). 

The Excellence Awards are the highest honors presented to Lee faculty members and recognize advising, scholarship, and teaching. The Excellence in Teaching is the oldest award and considered to be superior among the three. The winner of this award is chosen by a special committee which includes representatives of six different academic departments.
