About The Jean Brierley Award
Jean Brierley (1908-1986) graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 1930 with
a baccalaureate degree in Zoology. She then went to the University of Michigan where
she received her MS and PhD. She joined the faculty at Michigan State College in
1945, teaching freshman biology and natural sciences. She retired from the faculty
at Michigan State University in 1973 as a full Professor.
Professor Brierley established an endowed fund in 1973 to recognize teaching in any
field or discipline at the University of New Hampshire. This fund was completed upon
her death as a tribute to those members of the UNH faculty who have distinguished
themselves as teachers. One award is rendered each academic year as our highest
level recognition for excellence in teaching. In conjunction with the UNH Center for
Excellence in Teaching & Learning, recipients host an annual event to advance
the teaching mission of the university.

presentation on college teaching. For the first ten years, the presentations were
published as a booklet and are available in the Archives book collection: LD3779N4k
