 2016 Distinguished Teaching Contributions Award

Satoris (Tori) Culbertson, Kansas State University

Dr. Culbertson’s former and current students use a variety of glowing adjectives to describe her teaching effectiveness, including “engaging,” “stimulating,” “inspiring,” “captivating,” and “comprehensive.” That her teaching is outstanding is evidenced by her overwhelmingly positive evaluations and honors from two different colleges at Kansas State: the College of Arts and Sciences’ William L. Stamey Teaching Award in 2012 and the College of Business Administration’s Ralph E. Reitz Outstanding Teacher Award in 2015. Students said she is “consistently well-prepared for class, utilized engaging educational materials and activities, and showed a clear understanding of all course materials, and, more importantly, the appropriate methods to create a stimulating environment in which students can learn.” She has been described as setting “remarkably high standards for her students’ work, and in so doing, invariably improving students’ performance.” Beyond the classroom, she provides students the opportunity and encouragement to stretch themselves by being involved in research projects, co-authoring journal articles and making presentations at SIOP and other national conferences. Through her support and mentorship many of her undergraduate students have advanced to master’s and doctoral programs in I-O and her graduate students have gone on to careers in research, teaching positions, and as practitioners. In sum, she is an exemplary teacher who has shown a strong passion for her work with students and the field of I-O psychology
