Ten faculty members and advisers receiving Undergraduate Teaching, Leadership & Diversity Awards from the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences were honored at a reception April 11 in Perkins Library.

The awards are given annually by the dean’s office in recognition of exceptionally strong teachers working across the college. This year, Trinity’s Arts & Sciences Council led the nomination and selection process for several categories. 

David Malone was awarded for Excellence in Advising, which honors faculty and staff advisers who have helped guide undergraduates in the first two years at Duke.

Here's what Malone's students have to say about him:

“He is incredibly receptive to listening and advising. He cares about me as a human being, not just as a student, which is refreshing. He was always willing to connect me to people who could help me.”

“David always made himself super accessible. He always was interested in how I was doing at Duke, what I am passionate about as a person, and my involvement on campus.”
