Ten faculty members received Excellence in Teaching Awards for 2002-03.
Nominations for the annual honor are submitted by students. The UCSC Academic Senate Committee on Teaching also receives a statement on teaching written by the nominee, as well as a letter from the department chair. The committee looks for evidence that the nominee has thought deeply about teaching and learning, and effectively applies that thinking in the classroom.
The text on the certificates for: Bruce Schumm, physics, reads: "for stimulating and challenging teaching in physics, for diligent preparation, clear presentation, and openness to new approaches, for going the extra mile for his students." See Currents story
