Van Note awarded CAP Excellence in Teaching award

Mount Mercy University MBA Coordinator Marcie Van Note was selected to receive the 2016 Council for Accelerated Programs Excellence in Teaching award. The national award is given to an outstanding faculty member who demonstrates excellence in their ability to relate to students and has provided significant contributions to the wider academic community.

“Marcie is very deserving of the CAP Excellence in Teaching Award,” said Dr. Tom Castle, associate provost and executive director for academic innovation. “Her student evaluations indicate that she is an inspiring, dedicated and knowledgeable instructor. Marcie blends years of real world business experience with a deep understanding of adult learning theory. In doing so, she creates a positive and inclusive learning environment, and helps her students find real meaning in her coursework.”

Van Note joined Mount Mercy’s faculty as an adjunct instructor in 2009 before moving to a full-time position as lecturer and advisor in the university’s Master of Business Administration program. After working in human resources most of her career, Van Note hadn’t imagined her path leading to higher education. But once she began, she knew she would finish her career teaching.

“The students in MBA and Masters of Strategic Leadership programs are very dedicated students,” Van Note said. “They take their education seriously and to be part of that is a pure pleasure. I get to come to work every day knowing that what I do is appreciated by many students and we are making a difference.”

Van Note will accept the award in late July at the 2016 CAP Conference in Austin, Texas.

Congratulations, Marcie!
