Three Chemistry Faculty Receive Undergraduate Teaching Awards


Patricia L. Clark, J. Daniel Gezelter and James F. Johnson, from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, are among the 18 winners of Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C. Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching.

The winners of Joyce teaching excellence awards represent faculty who have had a profound influence on undergraduate students through sustained exemplary teaching.

The awards are presented by the Office of the Provost, but recipients are selected through a process that includes peer and student nominations. Faculty committees in each of seven disciplinary areas - Business, Engineering, Fine Arts & Architecture, Humanities, Language and Lieterature, Science and Social Science - review the peer and student nominations.

The undergraduate teaching award is supported by a gift from the late Father Joyce’s classmates in the Class of 1937. This is the seventh year that advisers and student mentors are being honored through an award supported by the Julia Stearns Dockweiler Charitable Foundation.
