Since arriving at Cedarville University in 2013, I’ve had the opportunity to interview many prospective faculty members and have heard their heart for the Gospel, for their students, and for their subject area. With this caliber of professor on our faculty, it came as no surprise to me, then, that all five of the professors we nominated for Ohio Magazine‘s “Excellence in Education” awards were chosen to receive that honor. This acknowledgement is a testament to the high standards of teaching, mentoring, and general academic pursuit to which our faculty members hold themselves. Join me in congratulating Rebecca Gryka, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences; Marc Clauson, Ph.D., Professor of History and Law; Mark Gathany, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Biology; Tim Norman, Ph.D., Professor of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering; and Michelle Wood, Ph.D., Associate Professor of English.
