Excellent Teacher List

Each year, the University publishes the List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent, which honors those professors and teaching assistants who have gone above and beyond to make the University's educational mission a truly noteworthy endeavour. In this same spirit, the Department of Astronomy would like to highlight its own who have been so honored. The following members of the department have been named to this list since the 1993-94 academic year (A "*" denotes an instructor who was rated outstanding that semester).
