Owen’s innovating teaching methods, her significant numbers of students and mentorship are among the reasons for her receipt of this award. She is in continuous pursuit of instructional excellence and scholarly achievement, and is respected by CANR constituent groups through professional involvement.

Owen’s colleagues cite her encouragement of students to “think critically and ask questions, then she opens the door for them to answer those questions.” She works with students whose skills vary and includes them in undergraduate and graduate research.

And her students noted her ability to stand out in a time of need during the COVID-19 pandemic: “When our class switched to an online format in March 2020, Dr. Owen shifted her teaching style and expectations to better fit the needs and schedules of her students … this flexibility and compassion stood out to me as we all transitioned to learning and living in a new environment.”
