Four University of Iowa faculty members were honored with the President and Provost Award for Teaching Excellence in recognition of their years of outstanding teaching.

The award is given by the Council on Teaching, a university charter committee that provides a forum for discussion of present and future needs in teaching, as well as evaluation of experimental programs.

“In receiving this award, faculty are being recognized first and most importantly for their teaching,” says Thomas Schmidt, professor of physiology and chair of the Council on Teaching, “but also for their mentoring of students, scholarly contributions, role in course and curriculum development, and overall dedication and enthusiasm.”
