Local Teachers Recognized for Excellence Three faculty members at Rutgers University's Camden campus have been recognized for teaching excellence during the 2005-06 academic year.

CHERRY HILL residents Mary Bravo, an associate professor of psychology, and Ruth Anne Robbins, a clinical associate professor of law, and HADDONFIELD resident Rajiv Gandhi, an assistant professor of computer science, have been presented with the Provost's Award for Teaching Excellence.

The recipients of the annual award were nominated by their students and recommended to Rutgers-Camden Provost Roger Dennis by a committee of peers.

"We are fortunate to have these individuals who are so highly regarded by their students and their colleagues among the Rutgers-Camden faculty," says Dennis.

Bravo, who studies visual responses to external stimuli, regularly teaches courses in Experimental Psychology and Physiological Psychology at Rutgers-Camden. She received her doctoral degree in neurobiology from Northwestern University.

A graduate of the University of Maryland at College Park, Gandhi currently teaches Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science and Design and Analysis of Algorithms.

In addition to teaching in the Domestic Violence Clinic at the Rutgers University School of Law at Camden and supervising the pro bono Domestic Violence Project, Robbins also teaches legal writing courses. She earned her J.D. with high honors from Rutgers-Camden.
