Steven Corcelli and Holly Goodson Receive Undergraduate Teaching Awards


The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry associate professors Steven A. Corcelli and Holly V. Goodson are among twenty University faculty members to receive Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C., Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching.

Fredman, English; Brad S. Gregory, history; Daniel M. Hungerman, economics; Kristin M. Lewis, biological sciences; Chong Keat Arthur Lim, mathematics; Robert C. Nelson, aerospace and mechanical engineering; Walter J. Nicgorski, liberal studies; Carolyn R. Nordstrom, anthropology; Vera B. Profit, German and Russian languages and literatures; Valerie L. Sayers, English; Christian Smith, sociology; Douglas L. Thain, computer science and engineering; and Julianne C. Turner, psychology.

The undergraduate teaching award is supported by a gift from the late Father Joyce’s classmates in the Class of 1937.
