CLAS International Educator of the YearCongratulations to Bernard Whiting who has been selected as the CLAS International Educator of the Year in the senior faculty category. The award recognizes Bernard's many international activities including leadership of the department's International Research Experiences for Undergraduates program in gravitational-wave physics, organization of meetings and schools, and establishment of a cooperative exchange agreement between UF and the Institute for Astrophysics in Paris.
CLAS recognizes as Anderson Scholars those UF students who maintain a GPA of at least 3.90 over their first two years. Each Anderson Scholar is asked to identify one faculty member who has been particularly inspiring or influential. The faculty so named by the 2013 Anderson Scholars include our own Amlan Biswas, Selman Hershfield, and Heather Ray. Congratulations to these three for earning this recognition!
