Eric R. Immel Teaching Award

I have received the inaugural Eric R. Immel Award for Excellence in Teaching for my PHYS 2212 class in Fall 2014!  It is named after the late Professor Immel and recognizes exemplary teaching in foundational classes in the prior academic year to a junior faculty member.  I’m grateful for the philanthropy of Charlie Crawford (MATH `71) that allowed the creation of this award.
