UR celebrates
select professors

The Hawkins-Carlson Reading Room in Rush Rhees Library was filled with University community members yesterday in celebration of the Goergen Awards for contributions to undergraduate education in the College of Arts, Sciences and Engineering.

This year’s recipients of the Goergen award for Distinguished Achievement and Artistry in Undergraduate Teaching are Associate Professor of Optics and Chemistry Todd Krauss, Professors of Psychology Harry Reis, Marie Curran Wilson and Joseph Chamberlain Wilson and Professor of Political Science Bingham Powell Jr.

Known for his lively lecturing style, Krauss is a student favorite.
‘I often remind the students that although we are always serious about learning chemistry,” Krauss wrote in his statement of teaching philosophy, ‘it does not mean that we always have to be deadly serious in presenting it.”

Other award recipients included Associate Dean of Students and Director of Wilson Commons Student Activities Anne-Marie Algier for Distinguished Contributions to Undergraduate Learning and Senior Associate Director of the Dean’s Staff Jacqueline Levine for Curricular Achievement in Undergraduate Education on behalf of the Center for Study Abroad and Interdepartmental Programs.

In honor of trustee and former Board Chairman Robert Goergen ’60 and his wife, the award rewards those who have significantly contributed to the UR community.
