2006 Excellence in Teaching Recipient

Allen, ToddTeaching wasn’t originally in Todd Allen’s life plans, but he’s good at it.

Allen, an assistant professor in Geneva’s communications department, received Geneva’s 2006 Excellence in Teaching Award. He credits professor emeritus Harry Farra ’62 with instilling in him a love for teaching and says his greatest joy is the relationships formed with students.

With a vision for teaching being something more than simply what occurs in the classroom, Allen has extended his efforts beyond Geneva’s campus, leading an annual Civil Rights Bus Tour in the summer. The tour is open to Geneva students, alumni, faculty, staff and members of the community.

Allen taught his first courses at Geneva in 1996, including intercultural communication. He now teaches argument and debate, communication process, group dynamics and senior seminar as well as directs the college’s forensics team. He is currently working toward his doctorate at Duquesne University.


 

Point of Excellence

Geneva's Communication Disorders students have attended graduate programs all over the U.S., at schools such as the University of Iowa, California State University - Fullerton, Gallaudet University and University of Pittsburgh.
