Heidi Hoefinger, PhD, Math and Sciences, Berkeley College School of Liberal Arts, received the Faculty of the Year award for Outstanding Scholarship during a dinner reception held at Battery Gardens on November 3, 2016, in Manhattan, NY. A resident of Ridgewood in Queens, NY, Dr. Hoefinger was among 18 Berkeley College faculty members and fellow professionals who were recognized by students and colleagues for their contributions to student-centered learning in exceptional ways.

“These annual awards recognize faculty members who serve as role models in demonstrating commitment to the success of Berkeley College students,” said Beth M. Castiglia, PhD, Provost, Berkeley College. “We know they are successful because of their love of teaching. The feedback from their students and colleagues reflect this.”  

“What really drives me to teach are those ‘a-ha’ moments,” Dr. Hoefinger said. “Those visibly transformative moments when a student discovers something about themselves, when their perspective changes, when they grow more tolerant, when they leave the class a different person from when they began.”
