Professor Veseth Named Washington Professor of the Year

On November 18, 2010, Professor Mike Veseth was named Washington Professor of the Year by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The U.S. Professors of the Year program is the only national program to recognize excellence in undergraduate teaching and mentoring.

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.
