ASSOCIATION OF FORMER STUDENTS DISTINGUISHED ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS FOR TEACHING - COLLEGE LEVEL

Congratulations to Dr. Urs Kreuter, professor in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management, on receiving The Association of Former StudentsDistinguished Achievement Award for College-Level Teaching. Dr. Alan Sams, Executive Associate Dean of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and Marty Holmes, Vice President of The Association of Former Students, surprised Dr. Kreuter during his Thursday morning class to deliver the good news.

In his 14 years at Texas A&M University, Dr. Kreuter has made many highly significant contributions to the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management. His teaching contributions span the range from introductory, capstone, and study abroad courses at the undergraduate level, a trans-disciplinary graduate course offered to students across campus, and to exemplary graduate student mentoring.

Dr. Kreuter combines elements of lecture, group discussion, intensive writing, teamwork and hands-on learning.    One student says “watching Dr. Kreuter teach, you can feel his love for what he teaches.” Dr. Kreuter has also created a popular South African study abroad course that is a culturally and intellectually enriching experience.
