Emeritus – Fine Arts

William Scarlato, M.F.A. (Fine Arts), who was awarded the Distinguished Faculty Award for Teaching 2015-2016

(2016) Scarlato has been a professor of Fine Arts at Benedictine for more than 25 years. His own art is displayed throughout the University and frequently appears at galleries throughout the Chicago area. But more importantly, he inspires his students, many of whom have gone on to successful careers in art and teaching.

“Bill is passionate about his discipline and serious about his craft, and foremost, he is serious about how he imparts artistic principles to the young minds who come to our institution to learn,” de la Cámara said. “His teaching excellence comes through his ability to lift a student’s performance.”

~María de la Cámara, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at Benedictine
