HONOLULU, HAWAIʻI — UH Mānoa Chancellor Virginia S. Hinshaw has bestowed 2009 Chancellor‘s Citations for Meritorious Teaching on Lois Magnussen and Kate Lingley. The annual award recognizes UH Mānoa faculty members who have made significant contributions to teaching and student learning.

Magnussen is a professor and director of faculty development in the UH Mānoa School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene. She is the point person for the Systemwide Nursing Consortium, which has developed an integrated, cohesive and uniform statewide curriculum for nursing. Demonstrating exemplary leadership in administration, scholarship and instruction, Magnussen believes a nursing teacher should show students how to "think like a nurse" so they can effectively transition into the practice world. Magnussen has taught at all levels of the curriculum, with a current emphasis on working with doctoral students.

Lingley is an assistant professor of art history in UH Mānoa‘s Department of Art and Art History. She is recognized for her expertise in Chinese art, and teaches courses on early art of China, modern and contemporary art of China, Chinese sculpture and applied arts, traditional Chinese painting, and tomb sculpture and funerary art. Lingley has taken it upon herself to develop an undergraduate art history list serve that disseminates news about jobs, internships, and scholarships, so she and the program can keep better track of students and help them succeed in the field.

Magnussen and Lingley will be recognized for their achievements along with other UH award recipients at the annual Convocation ceremony in the fall at the UH Mānoa campus. The ceremony is open to the public at no charge, and no reservations are needed. For more information on the awards ceremony, visit
