Math and statistics professor Rick Caron calls chemistry professor emeritus Roger Thibert one of his favourite people. That is why he was so honoured to be named one of the inaugural recipients of the Roger Thibert Teaching Excellence Award, Monday at the Celebration of Teaching Excellence.
“I thought, if I’m going to get a teaching award, this is the one I want,” Dr. Caron said. “I feel such a kinship with the man for his dedication to his students.”
Alan Wright, vice-provost, teaching and learning, said the reception, now in its sixth year, is an important opportunity to collectively recognize the successes of faculty.
“The University of Windsor is on the move,” he said. “We’re getting better and better at what we do.”
