Patricia Okker is a professor of English at the University of Missouri, where she chaired the Department of English from 2005 to 2011 and currently serves as faculty fellow in the Office of the Provost. Her public presentation followed the theme and format required of the finalists: speak on the value of a liberal arts education, then take questions from the audience collected and delivered by members of the search committee.

In presenting the award, University of Missouri English department Chairwoman Patricia Okker touted the importance of rhetoric and composition in any person's arsenal of skills, from scientist to novelist, but even more important in my own perspective is the value of writing as a peerless learning tool.
