Robert B. Gayhart Award in Chemical Education
This award, established in 2007, recognizes individuals who aspire to teach chemistry, and is named in honor of Professor Robert Gayhart who was a departmental leader (1967-2007) in the principles and practice of excellence in chemical education.
The award consists of a certificate and a one-year subscription to the “Journal of Chemical Education,” funded by the Bradley University Chemistry Club.
Nominees will preferably be a chemistry-secondary education major with sound academic standing. In the absence of a suitable chemistry-secondary education major, a chemistry or biochemistry major, with senior status and significant lab assistant, tutoring, and/or demo show experience, may be nominated. Up to three nominees will be selected by the Chemistry Club Executive Committee. The Executive Committee will provide to the faculty a short biography of each candidate that addresses the selection criterion. Potential nominees are excluded from the Selection Committee.
