Ben Quintana, an adjunct faculty member in the College of Business and Economics, received the Adjunct Faculty Member of the Year Award from Provost John Buckwalter.

“To deliver our academic programs at Boise State, we rely on faculty in both tenure and non-tenure track roles,” Buckwalter said. “Adjunct faculty play a critical role and are essential to the delivery of high-quality academic programming, and help us achieve our first goal of the strategic plan – student access and student success.”

The award honors adjunct faculty members who are demonstrating excellence in teaching, particularly by using evidence-based instructional practices and student engagement techniques to support student success, as well as by their engagement with faculty development opportunities.

Student and peer testimonials recognized Quintana for the significant impact he’s made in the Professional, Online and JD/MBA programs in the College of Business and Economics, and his students speak highly of the care he devotes to his classes both as an educator and as a mentor for rising business professionals.
