Zoologist Canada's professor of the year

He creates excitement for learning: vice-president

Zoology prof. Lee Gass's reputation as one of Canada's foremost university educators has advanced even further with the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) naming him the top Canadian Professor of the Year.

Gass was unanimously chosen from among 16 nominees from Canadian universities.

The award recognizes Gass's dedication to undergraduate teaching and service to the university, community, and teaching profession.

"This is a great honour for Lee and wonderful news for UBC," says vice-president, Academic, Barry McBride. "Lee has and will continue to create an excitement for learning that is infectious."

A faculty member since 1974, Gass was a member of the Science One planning team and is the current director of the Integrated Sciences Program, as well as a teacher in both the Coordinated Sciences and Integrated Sciences programs. He has also maintained an active research career, but closed his lab two years ago in order to devote the remainder of his career to teaching and faculty development.

Gass received a University Killam Teaching Prize and a 3M Teaching Fellowship in 1999.

The CASE award is sponsored by the Royal Bank.
