Western Washington University’s Rich Brown, associate professor of Theatre Arts, has been selected as the 2015 Washington Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

Brown, who has taught at Western since 2006, traveled to Washington D.C. on Nov. 19 to accept the award – the second such award in three years by a Western faculty member, with Geology’s Scott Linneman winning the award in 2013.

Brown said that he would like to think of this award as representing the quality of teaching across campus at Western, and being a reflection of the deep caring for theatre and for his students that he brings to his classes.
