Wilkins Township Resident Recognized for Excellence in Teaching
Dr. George Bradley, associate professor in Duquesne University’s McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts, has received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Teaching.
A member of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science since 1981, Bradley teaches a range of undergraduate courses, including a variety of calculus, abstract and linear algebra, and discrete math, to majors and non-majors. He pioneered the departmental offering for the University core curriculum, Problem Solving with Creative Mathematics.
This spring, Bradley received the Award for Distinguished Teaching from the Allegheny Mountain Section of the Mathematics Association of America. Involved with the organization at regional and national levels for more than 20 years, he has contributed to mathematics education throughout the country and particularly in Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
A flexible and resourceful educator, Bradley has taught computer science as well as math and service-learning courses, and has helped to design the department’s sole online course in discrete math. In Bradley's nomination letter, McAnulty Dean Christopher Duncan noted, “His record demonstrates a consistent commitment to excellent teaching in a difficult subject area over the course of a dedicated career.”
Bradley, who also received the faculty award for excellence in teaching from the McAnulty College, has been highly rated by students and praised by alumni as a teacher who is kind, helpful to students, enthusiastic and patient.
