UH Manoa Chancellor’s Citation for Meritorious Teaching
Manoa’s Meritorious Teachers
Department of Linguistics
Amy Schafer is an associate professor of linguistics. Schafer encourages students to thrive in class and to achieve an analytical understanding of the material.
Her classes involve significant integration of course concepts with hands-on professional activities. Schafer played a central role in establishing the language analysis and experimentation labs and introduced a series of new courses on psycholinguistics into the curriculum. She also created the Linguistics Beyond the Classroom program, in which undergraduate students focus on current linguistic research as part of their coursework.
A colleague observed that Schafer "embodies the type of researcher-teacher whose contributions we should hold up as an exemplary model for a research university."
