Andy Little on Teacher of the Year

The Teacher of the Year honors one ACU professor annually for his or her teaching techniques. The winner is nominated by the ACU student body in an end of the year survey. Little, who has been teaching at ACU since 2010, was announced the winner during the May commencement ceremony. He received a certificate and monetary reward.

Here are a few comments from Little's students, submitted for consideration by the judging panel:

"Dr. Little dedicates himself to not only teaching the material, but also to the students’ lives. He makes a point to be available to students and help them with schoolwork – or anything else going on in their lives. He is a strong Christian role model who cares about his students."

"Dr. Little has been an incredible mentor, friend and teacher to me. His classes are engaging, but more importantly, he has offered support beyond the classroom. He has been life plan adviser - academically, personally and spiritually.  He is a great asset to the business department, and I have no doubt he will continue to positively impact lives of students for years to come."

"Dr. Little was my professor for Business Law last year. I was most dreading this particular class, but it ended up being one of my favorites. Dr. Little is passionate, knowledgeable and genuinely cares about his students. Though I do not have him as a professor this year, I regularly visit his office to talk and catch up."

"Dr. Little is an incredible teacher and fantastic mentor. He truly cares about the well-being and the future of his students. When he discovered I was interested in going to law school, he offered to take me under his wing and allowed me to do a guided study with him. Throughout the guided study, he focused on making sure we covered material that was interesting to me, as well as helping me discover my path to law school. He also wrote a recommendation letter that helped me gain acceptance to Baylor Law School."
