PRESIDENTIAL AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE IN 2013 - Classical & Oriental Studies
Tamara Green, Classical and Oriental Studies, Professor and Chair has won a 2013 Presidential Award for Excellence for Special Service (Retiring Long-Time Chairs).
During her four decades at Hunter, Tamara Green has won nearly every teaching and service award for which she is eligible. A noted scholar, teacher and exemplary member of the Hunter community, she will be stepping down as the chair of the Department of Classical and Oriental Studies at the end of the academic year after 32 years of service in this capacity. Never one to rest on her laurels, Tamara was awarded a Presidential Award for Excellence in Service in 2002 and, 11 years later, her service to the College is even more impressive as she has continued to provide inspired leadership to her colleagues in the department and in the Thomas Hunter Honors Program with grace, tenacity, and good humor. She has created thriving programs in Arabic and Chinese. Her file is full of letters of appreciation from colleagues and former students and they serve as just another testament to her mentorship and the scholarly contributions she has made in her areas of interest, which include ancient history, late antiquity, and Greek and Roman religion.
