Excellence in Teaching Award

Cathy ButlerIt gives me great pleasure to announce, on behalf of the Endicott College Alumni Association, this year’s recipient of the Excellence in Teaching Award. Each academic school selects students to participate in the nomination process. The student representatives selected five candidates who they felt contributed to the success of the Class of 2018. These five names were then voted on by the graduating class to determine this year’s recipient of the Excellence in Teaching Award.

Student ballots have now been counted and Cathy Butler, Assistant Professor and Internship Coordinator in the Gerrish School of Business, has been selected as this year’s award recipient. As the recipient of this award, Cathy will serve as the faculty speaker at the Baccalaureate ceremony on Friday, May 18th, and will perform the duties of the Grand Marshal at Commencement on Saturday, May 19th.  

Cathy completed her undergraduate work at the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She earned her graduate degree in Leadership Development from Northeastern University. At Endicott, Cathy teaches Internship 100, Internship 200 and helped design and pilot Internship Strategies, BUS379. Her innovative course content and teaching approach inspires students to seek and attain highly competitive internship experiences. Her classroom style engages students using proven methods in researching and identifying career possibilities.

Outside the classroom, Cathy is the founding Advisor to Endicott’s Women in LEADership organization, which launched its signature event EC Changemakers. Now in its 3rd year, the conference hosts dynamic leaders across industries whose message is to inspire students to take on leadership roles and build meaningful careers. Cathy has presented nationally at the Cooperative Education and Internship Association meetings for the past three years. As a career education thought leader, Cathy has published articles and blogs on career management best practices.

Please join the Alumni Association, the Office of Institutional Advancement, and the Commencement Committee in congratulating Cathy Butler on this honor and accomplishment.
