In the words of University of Puget Sound President Ron Thomas:
A Puget Sound professor since 1975, Mike was nominated by colleagues, students, and alumni working in business, nonprofits, the arts, and academia, from London to Kathmandu. Of special note, some of the alumni who nominated Mike for this honor majored in areas other than Mike’s field of international political economy. They cited his inspiring teaching, creative course development, unusual capacity to connect with students, dedicated mentorship, and the lifelong, transformative impact he has had—and continues to have—on their lives.
Congratulations to Mike for this well-deserved award.
