Experience is the best teacher. The faculty members who received the 2007 John S. Diekhoff Award for graduate teaching at Case Western Reserve University are indicative of the adage, as they have been recognized many times for their effectiveness in the classroom and their ability to connect with and engage students.

Richard Boyatzis, professor of organizational behavior at the Weatherhead School of Management, and Richard Hanson, Leonard and Jean Skeggs Professor of Biochemistry, will receive the Diekhoff Award during Commencement on Sunday, May 20 at the Veale Convocation, Recreation, and Athletic Center.

A committee of graduate and professional program students selected these faculty members based on nominations from students enrolled in the university's graduate-level disciplines. Read more about these two faculty members and their accomplishments.
