Sometimes peoples’ efforts behind closed doors go unnoticed. Many people strive for excellence and never receive the deserved accolades. For associate professor Dr. Janelle Macintosh, however, this is not that case. Recently, Macintosh was awarded the Alcuin Fellowship for 2020- 2022 from Brigham Young University.

The Alcuin Fellowship award recognizes teacher-scholars who have gone beyond the regular limits of their disciplines and made significant contributions to the general education and honors curriculum. This perfectly describes Macintosh’s efforts over the years, and she says, “I feel so blessed by this recognition.”

As an Alcuin Fellow, Macintosh has been invited to teach an Unexpected Connections Course for the honors program. It is an exciting opportunity for a BYU College of Nursing faculty member. She has been paired with Dr. John Talbot from the English department, and together they are creating a course about literature and health, which will be taught during winter semester for three years. Macintosh says, “I know I will learn so much from Dr. Talbot and the honors students in the classes. Together we will enlarge our worldview and expand our sphere of influence.”

The College of Nursing would like to congratulate Macintosh on this amazing accomplishment. She thanks college supporters and says, “This opportunity would not be feasible without the support of the administration at the College of Nursing, the BYU Honors Program faculty and staff, and my colleague who nominated me for this fellowship. Thank you!”
