Professor Houlihan Wins Distinguished Teacher Award
"This life is about teaching", said Robert R. Grimes, S.J., dean of
Fordham College at Lincoln Center. "Giving of ourselves to another
generation is what we are about: wisdom and learning." The distinguished
teaching award honoree in natural and life sciences, Michael Houlihan,
Ph.D., was singled out for his contributions to the University's
emerging Department of Computer Sciences.
Robert Himmelberg, Ph.D., dean of Arts and Sciences Faculty, said "he
energizes his class with a combination of clarity, rigor and humor... he is
truly a man for others."
Since 1994, the Distinguished Teaching awards have honored excellence in the
undergraduate natural and life sciences, humanities and social sciences, and
since 1996 in the graduate arts and sciences overall.
