OCU Student and Professor Win DaVinci Institute Awards

The DaVinci Institute will award one Oklahoma City University professor and a student during its annual banquet March 23 at the Oklahoma History Center.

Harbour Winn, OCU English professor, was named a DaVinci fellow; and Mollie Reid, an education major, was named a DaVinci scholar earlier this month.

OCU students have been recognized three years in a row, and OCU faculty members have been recognized two years in a row.  

The DaVinci Institute is an organization of leaders in higher education who are committed to nurturing the arts, sciences, humanities and education in Oklahoma. Its scholars program began in 2003.

Scholars are chosen based on their willingness to advance their teaching careers in Oklahoma. According to the organizationís criteria, the recipients practice interdisciplinary instructional methods in the classroom, recognize and support the value of multiple intelligences, individual learning styles, and foster creativity and critical thought in students.
