Darden Professor Frank Warnock Honored With UVA’s All-University Teaching Award
By Dave Hendrick
Warnock, who teaches in the Global Economies and Markets area, was lauded for his commitment to encouraging new perspectives, building relationships with students and helping graduates as they begin to build careers.
“Markets in Human Hope” is one of the classes Warnock teaches with his wife, Veronica, sharing with students how to use economics to solve some of the world’s greatest problems. “As MBAs, we were ready to run to a new venture or start a nonprofit, but Frank put those premature ideas on hold and forced us to think deeply about the problem. … If you don’t wrestle with complexities of why a market failure exists — be it clean water or subprime financing or food waste — you’re unlikely to solve the root problem.”
