Retired music professor Ellen Rosand was recently awarded the William Clyde DeVane Medal, Yale College’s oldest award for outstanding teaching.
The medal honors faculty who have distinguished themselves as teachers of undergraduates in Yale College and as scholars in their fields, and has been conferred annually since 1966 by the Yale Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa (PBK). The medal’s namesake, DeVane, was dean of Yale College from 1938 until 1963, a long-time president of the Yale Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, and former national president of the United Chapters of PBK.
Each year, Phi Beta Kappa members in Yale College elect an undergraduate teaching recipient from among active members of the faculty, while graduate members of the society elect a recipient from among the retired members of the faculty.
