Ruha Benjamin Received 2017 President’s Awards for Distinguished Teaching


Dr. Ruha Benjamin, Assistant Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University and presenter for and friend of Not in Our Town, was one of four faculty members receiving the University’s President’s Award for Distinguished Teaching at Commencement ceremonies Tuesday, June 6.

“A colleague described Benjamin’s wide-ranging impact: ‘[Her] commitment to excellence in teaching has touched undergraduates, graduate students and the broader community. She is truly a remarkable teacher, and having her as a colleague inspires me to push a little deeper, give a little more, when I step into the classroom.'”

Congratulations, Ruha!  Well deserved.
