Alice Davis, an associate professor of nursing at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, has been awarded a 2014 UH Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Teaching. The honor is awarded by the Board of Regents as tribute to UH faculty members who exhibit an extraordinary level of subject mastery and scholarship, teaching effectiveness, and creativity and personal values that benefit students.

Davis’s peers describe her as someone who cares “professionally and personally” for her students. In turn, her students are filled with passion for the field of nursing. Private tutoring demonstrates Davis’s devotion to her students.

Fifteen UH faculty members were selected as recipients this year, and three were selected as recipients of the Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Research.

“University of Hawaiʻi teachers and researchers are world-class, in subjects ranging from automotive technology and justice administration to marine biology and astronomy,” said University of Hawaiʻi President David Lassner. “We thank these outstanding teachers and researchers for their service and dedication. They truly make a difference in the lives of our students and in our community.”
