REACH Faculty Wins Distinguished Teaching Award

Associate Professor Jordan Schmidt, Department of Chemistry, was one of twelve faculty members chosen to receive this year’s Distinguished Teaching Awards. The awards, an honor given out since 1953, recognize excellence in teaching, diversity and inclusion, and outreach teaching.

Schmidt received the Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Award. He has been involved in restructuring the general chemistry program since the day he arrived, working to reduce the achievement gap and bring about massive changes in active learning through participation in the REACH initiative.
