Congratulations to Dr. Bill Ju: Outstanding Teaching Award 2015 Recipient

The Human Biology Program is very proud to congratulate Dr. Bill Ju on being named a 2015 winner of the Faculty of Arts and Science Outstanding Teaching Award.

This annual award was created in 1993 to “highlight the great value of the Faculty… places on excellence in teaching,” and nominations stem from peers and student submissions. No more than four awards are presented each year, and the criteria that frames who will be selected from the submissions dictates that the winning instructors have the “ability to simulate critical… thinking [and] create an engaging and rewarding learning experience.” We cannot think of a better lecturer to fit this criteria than Dr. Ju. Congratulations, Bill!
