Excellence in Teaching by Teaching Assistants and Part-Time and Non-Tenure Track Faculty

Each year, the University at Albany honors special members of its community with Excellence Awards denoting exceptional contributions to the life of the campus. Five faculty members received this tribute in 2004 for Excellence in Teaching by Teaching Assistants and Part-Time and Non-Tenure Track Faculty.



Paul V. Morgan, Sr.Paul V. Morgan, Sr.Business

An attorney who engaged in private practice from 1959 to 1974, Professor Paul V. Morgan, Sr. has been a lecturer and adjunct professor of law at the University at Albany for 34 years, and currently is a lecturer in the Accounting and Law department of the School of Business. Morgan was principal law clerk to New York State Supreme Court justices from 1964 to 1987, and was employed at the Office of the New York State Comptroller as assistant deputy counsel to the Comptroller and an associate counsel from 1987 to 1992. He received the School of Business Dean W. Warren Haynes Memorial Award for Outstanding Graduate Teaching in 1999 and was the recipient of the Outstanding Faculty Award in recognition of contributions to the disabled student community.

“I feel Professor Morgan epitomizes what good teaching ought to be,” wrote Saurav Dutta, chair of the Department of Accounting and Law in the School of Business. “He is friendly and well-respected by the students, he generates students’ interest in the subject matter, and most importantly, is able to impart knowledge which leads them to success in his course and beyond.”

Joseph W. Sheehan, a local City Court judge as well as a University adjunct faculty member, was equally supportive. “I am honored to attest to Paul Morgan’s impeccable integrity, to his untiring work ethic, and to one particular trait which he displays with uncanny ease, his unparalleled ability to interact with his students in a manner that is not only personable and professional, but which also provides a sense of reassurance to those students who have made inquiries to him.”
