Pat Mahoney has been selected as a Loren W. Crabtree Global Teaching Scholar for the Fall 2020 CSU Semester at Sea (SAS) voyage. Four CSU faculty members are chosen for this honor on each voyage.

SAS moved its offices to the CSU campus in 2016, and well-deserving Global Teaching Scholars have been boarding the ship since. This article describes the award’s namesake.

During his semester-long voyage, Pat will teach three undergraduate courses, serve as a mentor and advisor, lead field experiences, and much more. The SAS community extends beyond undergraduates and faculty to include SAS lifelong learners and alumni, residents and partners at each port, multi-national crew members, parents, and shipmates of all ages who accompany staff and all of the above.

This award is unique to CSU and provides faculty with full pay and benefits as well as compensation for Sociology to cover courses while Pat is sailing. When he returns to campus, Pat will share his experiences in various ways through the Global Teaching Scholar program.
