Professor Bucholz named Faculty Member of the Year
Professor and Chair of the History Department Robert Bucholz has been named Faculty Member of the Year by the Student Government of Loyola Chicago and the Maroon and Gold Society. As described by a nominator, “Professor Bucholz touches the lives of all undergraduate students, inspiring them to be great students and then congratulating them on their accomplishment. Outside of his day-to-day commitments as Chair, rather than limiting his scholarly output to monographs for limited audiences, he writes textbooks and produces innovative Teaching Company courses that reach people around the world.
According to the Division of Student Development website, this award "recognizes the extraordinary contributions and quality service of a faculty or staff member in his/her role in fulfilling the mission of Loyola University Chicago, particularly by improving the life of the Loyola student body. This award is the only award given solely by the Loyola student population to a faculty or staff member. It seeks to honor those individuals who have supported and guided students in their personal and leadership development during the past academic year." The Award was bestowed at a banquet this past Sunday evening.
