Professor of Marketing Named Distinguished Teacher of the Year

The Sellinger School congratulates Jason Q. Zhang, professor of marketing, for being named the 2021 Harry W. Rodgers III Distinguished Teacher of the Year. This award was founded in 1971 to give public recognition to full-time faculty members whose teaching activities demonstrate a high degree of professional excellence and was established through the generosity of Harry W. Rodgers III, '50 and is supported by the Harry W. Rodgers III Distinguished Teacher Award Fund.

Undergraduate students nominate teachers for the award. Once selected as the Distinguished Teacher of the Year, the faculty member is inducted into the Alpha Sigma Nu Society in April.
