Jeffrey Rhoades, a veteran educator who teaches in The University of Baltimore's School of Health and Human Services within the College of Public Affairs, has been named the winner of the 2021 Richard H. Bucher Adjunct Faculty Award. Since 2016, Rhoades has led courses in both the graduate and undergraduate programs in Health Management and Health Administration, focusing on key subjects such as health care management, epidemiology, and health systems management. Prof. Rhoades has decades of experience in these areas, and consistently earns high marks from his students.
The Bucher Award is named for a long-time adjunct faculty member who, in effect, set a high bar for the institution's adjunct educators by delivering not only solid teaching to deserving students, but also a strong commitment to service, camaraderie within the community, and excellence in academic research and writing. The award includes a $1,500 cash prize, and, when the University is fully back once the pandemic has ended, a recognition ceremony with friends, family and colleagues.
"The University of Baltimore is fortunate to have a scholar with Prof. Rhoades's expertise serving our students," said UBalt President Kurt L. Schmoke.
In his letter nominating Prof. Rhoades for the honor, College of Public Affairs Dean Roger Hartley wrote, "Our adjunct professors provide a vital piece of our educational experience at UBalt. The best of them teach, mentor and bring their experience into the classroom. This supplements the work of traditional full-time faculty. They often juggle another job and family to teach for us. The 'best of the best' adjunct professors connect our students to meaningful career opportunities as well, and become a regular part of the program."
