Six members of the department of chemistry at UNC-Chapel Hill are among the winners of the Student Undergraduate Teaching and Staff Awards (SUTASA). SUTASA was established in 1989 to recognize outstanding undergraduate instruction by both faculty and teaching assistants. In 2004, the awards were extended to include a staff award to recognize a staff member’s contributions to the undergraduate experience at Carolina.
A committee of undergraduate students reviewed the teaching nominations on the basis of demonstrated and consistent teaching excellence, success in positively affecting a broad spectrum of students both in and outside the classroom and creation of a dynamic learning environment. The staff award nominations were reviewed on the basis of demonstrated excellence in service, dedication to undergraduate students and in positively affecting a broad spectrum of Carolina undergraduate students.

- Sam Bottum, Cahoon Research Group
