Gretchen Bender, Assistant Chair and Director of Undergraduate Studies, has been awarded the Chancellor's Distinguished Teaching Award. This is the highest honor our university bestows for teaching excellence. Gretchen's past distinctions include the David and Tina Bellet Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching award, and the AMPCO-Pittsburgh Prize for Excellence in Advising. This latest recognition comes as no surprise to all of us fortunate enough to work and study with Gretchen. Congratulations to you Gretchen!
