Amy Hubbard

COLA Outstanding Teaching Award
Recognition Year: 

Sociology and Anthropology

Amy Hubbard is a popular and inventive teacher of physical anthropology who challenges her students to excel.

During her time at Wright State, Dr. Hubbard has developed many new anthropology courses featuring hands-on labs and large-scale active learning format courses. Introduction to Biological Anthropology, which she created, is the only course in the college that fulfills part of the natural sciences requirement in the Wright State Core. She has also expanded the department’s collection of teaching materials by adding more skull casts and artifact replicas. Among courses she regularly teaches for the anthropology major are a “citizen-science” research project at Woodland Cemetery and one of the few bioarchaeology field schools in the United States. Dr. Hubbard has been named Wright State University’s 2021 Robert J. Kegerreis Distinguished Professor of Teaching.
