Bala Wins Tykeson Award for Teaching Excellence

Congratulations to Professor Jagdeep Bala for winning the prestigious Tykeson Teaching Award from the College of Arts and Sciences!

Divisional Dean for the National Sciences Hal Sadofsky surprised Jag by presenting the award to Jag during her Peer Advisors class meeting. All the other CAS deans were in attendance (Ford, Blonigen, Scher, & Wonham), plus Department Head Ulrich Mayr, former Tykeson Teaching Award winner Jordan Pennefather, multiple Psychology Department faculty, some staff members, and the three advising GEs in Psych (Everett, Fridman, and Bedford-Peterson) who work with Jag. Jag’s husband, Avinash, was also able to be there for the surprise.
