Lee Wurm wins CLAS Teaching Award

Date: 2/5/2015

Professor Lee Wurm of the Department of Psychology and the Linguistics Program has won a 2015 College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Teaching Award. Prof. Wurm excels both as a classroom teacher and a mentor to undergraduates in his lab. He inspires strong attachment from his students: one wrote that he had never worked harder or learned more from any instructor. In addition to heavy M.A. and Ph.D. supervision, Wurm also brings undergraduates into his lab, where they learn the joys — and sometimes frustrations — of advanced independent inquiry. His lofty SET scores bespeak an unwavering commitment to excellence, which is matched by his openness and availability to students.
