Bye-Fellow Dr Matt Neal was presented with a Supervisor Commendation in this year’s CUSU Student-Led Teaching Awards.
Dr Neal (History 2003) is an historian of late seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Britain currently researching the political background to debate about religious toleration. He lectures in eighteenth-century British history at the Faculty of History and co-teaches Historical Argument and Practice at Fitzwilliam.
Now in their third year, the CUSU Student-Led Teaching Awards provide students with a unique opportunity to recognise the exceptional contribution those who teach and support them have made to their education. The Awards are organised by the University’s Student Union, and any student at Cambridge is able to nominate. Over 700 nominations were received this year and the judging of the Awards was carried out by a panel of students.
Dr Neal said:
“I am honoured and delighted to have been given a CUSU Student-Led Teaching Award. I would like to take this opportunity to thank CUSU, as well as the many students whom I have had the privilege to teach and who are an inspiration to me each and every year.”
