Eric D. Ross, Associate Professor and Associate Chair for Graduate Studies, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, received the College of Natural Sciences Faculty Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching and/or Mentoring Award.
The Teaching and Mentoring Awards were established in 1995 to recognize faculty and graduate students that have set a standard of excellence in the teaching and mentoring of students. These awards are the highest honor the College bestows for student education. Recipients not only help students realize their full learning potential, but encourage them to set high standards for scholarship, integrity, and independence, and are receptive to their concerns. Award winners are recommended to the dean and by a panel that includes previous award winners drawn from both faculty members and graduate students and an undergraduate student council member.
