Dr. Doug Lorenz named a "Top Four" Faculty Favorite

Congratulations to Douglas Lorenz, PhD, Assistant Professor in Bioinformatics and Biostatistics, who has been named a "Top Four" Faculty Favorite nominee for 2013-2014. Each year, the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning invites UofL students to nominate faculty, staff, and graduate teaching assistants who have made a significant difference in their learning and intellectual growth. A total of 307 faculty members were nominated for the 2013-2014 academic year. Dr. Lorenz and all other 2013-2014 Faculty Favorite nominees will be recognized during the lunch program at the Celebration of Teaching and Learning on Friday, Feb. 6, at Shelby Campus.

Be sure to watch this video of Doug Lorenz and his students. He was described as “AMAZING,” “super funny and one of our most approachable professors” and “hands down one of the best professors I’ve ever had at UofL.” One student described spontaneous applause for Lorenz at semester’s end: “I think it says a lot about a professor when 40 would-be strangers find it necessary to applaud the person that took them down the never-ending wormhole that is biostatistics.”
