Julie Heath Recognized as One of Country's Top Professors

Dr. Julia Heath

Dr. Julia Heath, Professor of Economics, has been named the 2011 Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching Tennessee Professor of the Year. This award is given jointly from the Carnegie Foundation and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). She is one of 46 state winners, chosen from more than 300 outstanding professors throughout the United States.

Dr. Heath, the other state winners, and four national winners, one each for the categories of baccalaureate colleges, community colleges, doctoral and research universities, and master’s universities and colleges, were honored at a luncheon in Washington, D.C., in November, followed by a Congressional reception. “This is beyond amazing,” Dr. Heath said. “This award is only given once every two years and is sponsored by one of the most respected organizations associated with education, so to be recognized with such a prestigious award is very humbling. I can’t imagine doing anything other than teaching, and to have my work in that profession recognized and validated in such a way is very gratifying.”

Dr. Shirley Raines, president of the University of Memphis and the person who nominated Dr. Heath for the award, said, “Dr. Julie Heath is exactly the kind of professor whom the Carnegie/CASE awards seek to honor. In my nomination to the judging panels, I cited the engaged scholarship that she has provided locally and in cooperation with the State of Tennessee and First Tennessee Bank in the area of financial literacy. “While her work with financial literacy has been recognized, it is her dedication to her students and to her profession that makes her such an extraordinary representative of the many outstanding professors who teach, research, and serve at the University of Memphis. Hers is a well-deserved award.”
