Professor Stohr with the Henry Morton Distinguished Professor Teaching Award and Professor Lombardi with the Alexander Crombie Humphrey’s Distinguished Associate Professor Teaching Award. Both awards were presented by Provost George Korfiatis – and were given in recognition of their record of excellence in teaching.
