Faculty member receives prestigious advising/teaching award
Alex Wettlaufer honored
Posted: June 1, 2007
The William David Blunk Memorial Professorship was established in 1977 as a tribute to Bill Blunk, longtime Director of the Dads' Association who served in the Development Offices of The University and the UT System for almost 30 years. This Professorship is designed to recognize a member of the University faculty who has demonstrated an outstanding record both of undergraduate teaching and of concern for undergraduates as demonstrated through advising and general guidance given to students. Such concern for students should have occurred within the context of excellent scholarship and high standards of performance.
The basic designation of an individual as William David Blunk Memorial Professor is for one academic year, although the terms of establishment provide for the possibility of one or even two renewals for a truly outstanding individual.
