Quintana receives top teaching honor from UW-Madison

March 22, 2017

Twelve faculty members have received this year’s Distinguished Teaching Awards, an honor given out since 1953 to recognize UW-Madison’s finest educators.

And among those who were recognized this year is the School of Education’s Steve Quintana.

Quintana, a professor with the departments of Counseling Psychology and Educational Psychology, received the Inclusive Excellence Award.

From the beginning of his appointment at UW-Madison in 1996, Quintana has contributed to diversity initiatives in the Department of Counseling Psychology and played a key role in increasing the inclusiveness in the Department of Educational Psychology.

Quintana has expanded his reach beyond the School of Education as developer and coordinator of the Diversity Dialogues program, 90-minute facilitated conversations in small groups focused on diversity issues. The Dialogues have now been offered within nearly every major college and school a UW-Madison, reaching more than 10,000 students, faculty and staff.

This past year, Quintana has consistently been involved in the Our Wisconsin program, the chancellor’s initiative that provides workshops to incoming UW-Madison students to help build a campus community that is welcoming to all students.

Quintana’s years of experience and his presence in the planning and as a facilitator demonstrated to students that faculty care deeply about campus climate issues.

Chancellor Rebecca Blank and Provost Sarah Mangelsdorf presented the awards at a ceremony March 16 at the Fluno Center.
