Each spring, the University Honors Program recognizes an Honors Teacher of the Year. Honors student nominations, faculty members’ Honors course evaluations, letters of nomination, and a variety of other resources influence the selection. The recipient is recognized at the spring semester Honors graduation ceremony with a plaque and cash award.
Assistant Professor, Religion, Philosophy, and Classics
Dr. Heidi Wendt completed her graduate work in ancient Mediterranean Religion and Classics at Brown University, where her dissertation examined the letters of Paul, among other evidence. Her current research investigates the formation of new religious movements, including diverse Christian groups, in the first and second centuries of the Roman Empire, and will be published in a book provisionally entitled, At Temple Gates: The Religion of Freelance Experts in the Early Roman Empire.
At Wright State, Professor Wendt teaches courses on the New Testament and early Christianity with a view to the wider Greco-Roman world. She also teaches a section of "The Bible & Western Culture," which examines the formation of biblical literature and the Bible's subsequent role in the development and practices of various religious groups.
Congratulations to Heidi Wendt, the 2015 Honors Teacher of the Year!
