The 2018 College of Arts & Sciences Godfrey Excellence in Teaching Awards
The College of Arts and Sciences Godfrey Award for Excellence in Teaching was created to allow students to recognize faculty who go above and beyond.  The award is endowed in honor of Bill Godfrey, who retired in 2017 after 52 years of service. 
Recipients must demonstrate a warm spirit, a concern for society and the individual, and the ability to impart knowledge while challenging students to independent inquiry and creative thought.
