Professor of Christian Ethics Timothy P. Jackson has won a 2020 Crystal Apple Award. Sponsored by Emory University’s Residence Hall Association and selected by students in nine categories, Crystal Apple awards honor faculty who go above and beyond their search for knowledge and involvement in the Emory community. The awards were presented on campus on February 19.
Jackson received the Excellence in Professional School Education Award, designed for Emory faculty who instruct classes in the professional schools. Jenna Lasky, a first-year student at Emory’s College of Arts and Sciences, nominated Jackson.
“Although I am an undergraduate student, Dr. Jackson permitted me to join his bioethics course in the graduate school because he knew my interest was genuine,” Lasky wrote. “Being in his class has only strengthened my love for biomedical ethics, and helped me develop a more concrete understanding of this incredible subject. Dr. Jackson has opened my eyes to a world of crucial knowledge pertaining to Christianity, ethics, and morality. He doesn’t believe anyone is limited by their age or their background. He strongly supports the equal opportunity for learning. Dr. Jackson is the embodiment of an esteemed faculty member, and he plays no small role in shaping students’ minds and hearts.”
Jackson joined the Candler faculty in 1995. He also serves as a senior fellow at Emory’s Center for the Study of Law and Religion, a senior fellow at the university’s Center for Ethics, and teaches in the Graduate Division of Religion. Read more.
