Twenty University of Notre Dame faculty members have received Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C., Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching, and three have been honored with Dockweiler Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising. Six award winners are from the College of Science.
The awards are presented by the Office of the Provost, but recipients are selected through a process that includes peer and student nominations.
The College of Science Dockweiler Award winner for the 2014-2015 academic year:
- Philippe Collon, physics
The 20 winners of Joyce teaching excellence awards represent faculty who have had a profound influence on undergraduate students through sustained exemplary teaching. Faculty committees in each of seven disciplinary areas review the peer and student nominations.
The five College of Science Joyce Award recipients for the 2014-2015 academic year are:
- Brandon Ashfeld, chemistry and biochemistry
- S. Alex Kandel, chemistry and biochemistry
- A. Graham Lappin, chemistry and biochemistry
- Jeffrey Diller, mathematics
- David Hyde, biological sciences
The undergraduate teaching award is supported by a gift from the late Father Joyce’s classmates in the Class of 1937. This is the ninth year that advisers and student mentors are being honored through an award supported by the Julia Stearns Dockweiler Charitable Foundation.
