Irvin Tankersley Wins Thomas Briggs Teaching Award

Irvin Tankersley

Professor Irvin Tankersley, Professor in the School of Accountancy, has won one of two Excellence in Teaching awards sponsored by the Thomas W. Briggs Foundation. This is a highly prestigious award, and is well-merited recognition for one of the College's most outstanding, and widely recognized, teachers. Dr. Tankersley is a former winner of several other teaching awards including the University's Distinguished Teaching Award and a FCBE Palmer Professorship. As School of Accountancy Chair, Professor Carolyn Callahan, pointed out, "Professor Tankersley has demonstrated exceptional teaching skills in legal studies at the undergraduate level on several levels. Over a sustained period of time, he has proven to be an excellent teacher and a wonderful asset to the School of Accountancy".  Irv demonstrates strong interpersonal skills inside and outside the classroom.  These attributes and skills make it easy for his students, and colleagues, to interact with him. Both in the lecture hall and in person, Dr. Tankersley is a dynamic and powerful communicator who possesses the gift of being able to make complex legal topics understandable. In spite of these exceptional talents, he is a humble and approachable person who loves to share his extensive legal knowledge. As Professor Callahan opined, Irv is not only a great teacher he is also a wonderful colleague and an exemplary university citizen.
