Each year, the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Letters & Science Honors Program solicits student nominations of faculty members (or instructional academic staff) who have had a special impact as teachers of Honors courses, as supervisors of Honors theses, or as teachers and mentors of Honors students. The Faculty Honors Committee reviews these nominations and votes to confer Distinguished Honors Faculty status on the strongest nominees for these awards each spring. Below, we recognize each of these incredible educators and thank them for their contributions to the lives of all students, but particularly those in the Honors program.
This year, Prof. Song Gao received the 2020 Distinguished Honors Faculty Award along with five other faculty members on campus.
Also, congrats to Timothy Prestby for finishing his L&S undergraduate honor thesis “Understanding Neighborhood Isolation Through Big Data Human Mobility Analytics”. Best wishes to his graduate school life at PSU Geography!
