Drs. Jim Colbert of EEOB and Clark Coffman and Ethelbert Kemdirim of GDCB, introductory biology instructors for Principles of Biology, were recognized as being especially influential instructors by recent inductees into the Alpha Lambda Delta and Phi Eta Sigma honor societies. To qualify for membership in these honor societies, students must earn a 3.5 or higher GPA one semester of their freshmen year.
Inductees were asked to share which instructor had influenced them during their first year and how this individual had shaped their academic experience. Respondents cited these biology instructors for helping to make ISU an “outstanding institution where first-year students feel affirmed, encouraged and successful.”
