Dr. Robert Hermann, professor of physics, health careers program director, Osten Observatory director and chair of the natural science department, was presented with the 2016 Outstanding Teaching Award at the university’s commencement ceremony on May 7, 2016.

"This is an amazing surprise and a fantastic honor. It’s also a challenge because as I look at the amazing faculty that I get to work with, I know that every one of them is at least as good as I am, and most are better. And as I look at the graduates, no teacher can do anything without fantastic students in their class, so thank you to all of my students."
