    Deserves it!

    Dr. Chastain always above and beyond to help each and every student learn and succeed in his class. He was very understanding when things would come up because life was crazy this past semester and much uncertainly in a lot of different aspects. He is able to teach the class in a challenging but attainable way.

    Genuinely great teacher. The chem teachers need to take notes from this guy.

    he care

    One of the best teachers I have ever had. He made a difficult subject more appealing and easier to learn.

    He was very good at accommodating the jumbled class schedule with covid.

    Dr. Chastain is a professor that goes an extra 100 miles instead of one. He makes videos along with countless practice problems on each subject that unravels the most complex concepts of physics like an elementary teacher unraveling the letters of the alphabets.

    Chastain, You're a real one and made this class super stress free 99% of the time. You really deserve this especially with how this semester was. Best

    Dr. Chastain has been so helpful, especially during the pandemic. He is always checking in on his students and is very flexible. He offers supplemental sessions and information to ensure that there are enough opportunities for us to understand the material and succeed in his course. I have thoroughly enjoyed being in his class.

    Just an amazing teacher. He is so passionate about his students. He ensures everyone is learning and explains it another way if needed. Also very helpful during the time of covid.

    Raymond Chastain's class was very fun, he was an amazing professor.

    He has been so reasonable during these hard times. I think he deserves the reward because he actually tries to participate in my learning. He doesn't just post videos for us to learn and no lectures. He has videoed and practice problems and doesn't base our whole grade on tests which is an inaccurate way of determining students competency in a subject.

    Dr. Chastain made coming back to school and being forced to take an online class not only bearable, but enjoyable. He was always upbeat and ready to teach each of his students some physics with a smile on his face

    Professor Chastain is a fantastic professor, who has taken great strides to ensure his students are able to thoroughly learn and understand his material during this unusual semester. He has been very flexible and he has given us many opportunities for higher learning in this course. He has been one of the most supportive professors I have had during the COVID semester.

    Really cares for his students. Helped us sooo much in the craziness of this semester. He truly wants us to succeed. I wouldn't have passed this class with any other professor.

    Dr. Chastain has been an exceptional teacher especially during the covid-19 pandemic. Compared to many other professors I have had, he has been one of the most caring, thoughtful, and understanding which I personally believe is necessary for an outstanding professor. He cares about his students, their grades, and futures; instead of simply about getting his job done.

    Professor Chastain provides multiple ways to learn, he deeply cares about my learning, as well as every other student. The best professor I have had here!

    He was one of the only teachers who actually listened to our problems or concerns as students

    Dr. Chastain is an excellent professor all around. This semester, he was engaging and went above and beyond to help his students given the difficulties presented by the pandemic. He deserves recognition!

    Professor Chastain was so understanding when it came to our unusual situation with Covid. He thoroughly explains everything in class and although we were online he made it feel comfortable and easy to have a normal relationship with him. He made us feel comfortable to ask questions or talk about whatever we need.

    Professor Chastain doesn't require much text. He is the one of most down to earth, understanding, caring, accommodating, funny, kind professor I have had. He will go out of the way for the student even if the student hasn't been the best student in return. Truly a man who loves teaching and helping other.

    Out of all my professors he has been the most understanding about the transition to online school and was willing to adapt to what we needed.

    He really cared a lot about his students and also did a good job with getting his message across through online class structure.

    Dr. Chastain understood from the student prospective what it means to be a student during a pandemic. He was helpful and created a safe space to voice our concerns, and incorporated our needs into the class. He spent a great amount of time helping all individuals understand key concepts, and created opportunities to get help outside of class time.

    An amazing professor, has the students success always in mind.

    Dr. Chastain handled online classes flawlessly. He is very kind and was extremely knowledgeable. On several occasions, I would join class early and have conversations with him and other students that were great. Overall an absolutely amazing professor.

    HE IS AWESOMEEEEEEE. Great teacher made physics great even with covid.

    Chastain was an excellent teacher that was always looking out for what was best for his students. He answered emails religiously, made several avenues available for success, showed genuine care for his students grades, and laid out the course very simple and easy to navigate. One of Chastain's best attributes was his flexibility when it came to issues arising in class.

    Chastain has proven that he cares about his students. He will go out of his way to make sure that you are understanding the material. For the way he teaches, because of his interest on the student's learning abilities, for being sympathetic and understanding about this difficult time I believe he should be recognized and honored with this award to show him our appreciation

    He cares and understands for students. He teaches on a level that is very easy to understand for people who has little to no prior understanding of the course. He is very accessible outside of class. His office hours are in reasonable hours that fit for most students. He responds to email fairly quick. He is explains questions and how to solve problems well in writings.

Prof. Chastain created an atmosphere of support and encouragement, which I felt carried over into student-to-student interaction. Dr. Chastain was very supportive and compassionate, which was greatly appreciated during such an unusual and challenging semester.

    Dr. Chastain has made a significant positive impact on my time at UofL this semester. His knowledge of the material and ability to communicate said knowledge to student has been unparalleled. Other students in his class have the same positive view of Dr. Chastain. Out of all my classes so far, Dr. Chastain has been my favorite professor and is deserving of this title.

    Cared about the students success, low pressure course, and actually taught his course.

    Professor Chastain is the only educator who's been organized and adaptable through covid. I always knew what my grade was and I always knew the value of assignments. This is the only class that I fully understood what I was learning and it shows with several perfect test scores. If Professor Chastain isn't top 4 we're going to have some issues .˜¤

    Dr. Chastain is one of the best professors I've had during my time at UL. He truly cares about the success and general well-being of his students. He communicates regularly and effectively, and he offers many opportunities outside of the classroom for help with the material.

    Professor Chastain is the best!

    Fantastic instructor

    Dr. Chastain has been extremely understanding and willing to adapt during times where instruction has been a challenge on an instructor to student level. Dr. Chastain's care for his students is extremely clear when taking his class and his class was a refreshing experience even during these uncertain times.

    Best professor I've ever had. Kept morale high and stress levels low. Conveyed relatively hard physics material extremely well through his hilariously amazing lectures.

    The most amazing professor at UofL. During this time, he made us feel valid for the feelings we had during this pandemic. He went above and beyond for this class to make sure we learned the material.

    Cool guy.

    Great professor! Really seemed to care about my learning and also seemed to enjoy teaching. One of the best professors I have had at UofL.

    He is a great instructor, very patient, always well-prepared and update the course so that it can match to his students' needs

    Dr. Chastain is a professor that genuinely cares about his students. He has made the effort to turn his online class into a virtual classroom for his students to share their ideas, and he knows how to make a hard subject easier to learn. Dr. Chastain definitely deserves this award and recognition.

    Overall great professor, works with students to help us reach our full potential. Great person too, very funny and understanding.

    He was very accommodating to the class and very understanding if we struggled and always wanted to make sure we had time to go over the material. Best professors I've had yet!

    Dr. Chastain has been such a wonderful light in this trying time. Somehow, he managed to make both a difficult subject and a difficult time substantially better with his presence. On top of this, he also taught exponentially well and truly valued and asked for our feedback. Dr. Chastain, is to me, the definition of what all professors and teachers should aspire to be.

    Throughout this tough time of online school, he is one of the only teachers who has figured out how to work it the best and keep everyone in a good mood. He also cares about each and every one of us more than I have seen any teacher care in my life.

    Dr. Chastain has been the most amazing and supportive professor I have had throughout my college career. I feel like my grade is reflective of my knowledge and I feel as thought I was able to really learn and understand the content of a very difficult class under the direction of Dr. Chastain.

    Mathematics
    College of Arts and Sciences
    Helped me out a lot

    It comes across very clearly that his number one priority is his student's success. Dr. Luke does everything he can to teach, show and explain the knowledge he has and pass that along to every one of his students. As a future math teacher myself, I hope to one day be half the teacher Dr. Luke is. He deserves all the recognition he can get for being a great teacher!

    The nicest professor I have thus far and is always nice/understanding when asked questions. Plus he makes some jokes throughout class that bring some enjoyment into algebra.

    He was super nice! During the semester, he set reasonable timelines in place and was always willing to help. am sure that all of my classmates appreciate him very much. He is one of the most understanding teachers that I've ever had. He makes sure that all students understands while teaching or lets people ask questions. Best professor ever!

    Dr. Luke made me feel empowered and comfortable in our class when asking questions or about things I did not understand. I really appreciate all the work and effort he put into our class, make sure we not only could complete our assignments but that we understood the material. I don't know an educator who still does this.

    Dr. Luke was very generous and helpful throughout the course, to all students in general which I could see. He allowed me chances to help improve myself through this course so I could stay on track. I am grateful to him and thank him for that. He is a nice person and a good professor that I recommend.

    Dr. Luke was an excellent teacher who educated us not only gave us the knowledge and equations needed in solving real world application, but also gave us real insight to situations that happen in life.

    Dr. Luke is by far the most understanding and accommodating professor I have ever had. During these unprecedented times, he made sure every student that took his class had the resources to succeed whether that was breaking down an equation even more during a lecture or posting the lecture recording after class for review.

    An amazing teacher, he's gracious with all of his students. And has made many accommodations due to Covid and how hard this semester has been. He's always willing to help his students, and he actually cares that we succeed and know the content in his class. His TA's are very insightful as well and are always willing to help out.

    Dr. Luke was outstanding. The professor would do literally everything in his power to help the students to get good grades or with technical issues with the online portion of class. I have no other words other than fantastic.

    He cares. Even when the students don't see it or thinks he doesn't he cares. He's there to always help and takes our learning and to heart and honestly is saddened and hurt when we fail. One of my favorites at UofL.

    Working with Dr. Luke this semester has been so awesome. He is always considerate, helpful, and has conducted our class with so much grace this semester. Statistics has never been a favorite course of mine, but working with Dr. Luke has made it feel even more applicable.

    Very good at what he does, and in a non-traditional manner

    Dr. Luke has been one of the most accommodating professors in the midst of the everything happening this year. He has proved how dedicated he is to his students' education as well as their mental wellbeing.

    Dr. Luke is a professor who truly cares about the well-being of his students. During almost all of our online lectures, he always mentioned that he hoped we were doing well and that if we ever needed anything, to reach out.

    Dr. Luke was very helpful to me this semester. My Chromebook doesn't support Respondus and he offered solutions for me to take his tests. I accidentally missed a test because I forgot about it, and emailed him to let him know that I understand I'd be receiving a zero, but he responded and told me he would open the test back up for me to take, which I really appreciated.

    I had an extremely positive learning experience in Dr. Luke's LEAD 601 course. He performed exceptionally in explaining complex concepts in class lecture and was very caring towards students.

    Dr. Luke is one of the best professors I have had. Dr. Luke not only took the circumstances of this semester and made the online class super engaging, he also made sure to provide a warm, inclusive environment. I can say that I actually enjoy math now, have improved confidence, and that is a testament to a great professor.

    Dr. Luke was able to make connections with students, even though everything was virtual. He had so much faith and hope in us and never doubted us for a second. He only wanted to see us succeed in his class.

    Dr. Ryan Luke was incredibly kind in giving me an extension on an assignment I had completely forgotten about due to personal issues in my life that came on incredibly suddenly. He was very kind in his response and offered me support not only so that my grade wouldn't tank, but also let me know that I am supported, which I really appreciated. He deserves this tenfold.

    Dr. Luke was the best professor I have had throughout my college experience. I am not very good at math but he was able to explain everything in a way that makes sense. He encouraged questions and discussions. You can tell he is very passionate about math and teaching.

    Professor Luke strives for greatness everyday. He teaches and designs his courses to not only benefit student success, but student learning. After taking 2 of his courses and I can attest to the quality of his teaching and his ability to bring out the best in his students. I think that he is more than deserving of this award, and should be recognized appropriately.

    I absolutely without a doubt would nominate my calculus instructor for faculty favorite choice due to his accommodations during these difficult times during the pandemic and his complete understanding and utter care for the students he teaches. absolutely loved the care he put in his lectures. he truly deserves the nomination if not anyone else.

    I am nominating Dr. Luke because he is dedicated to helping each of his students succeed in his course. The course is challenging, but Dr. Luke has provided us with many resources including online videos, tutorials, lessons, anything someone would need to understand his course. He always makes time outside of class to help us understand the material.

    Dr. Luke was a really great professor; knew how to relate to his students in a way that made the work environment extremely comfortable.

    Dr. Luke helped me excel in math after I've taken and failed 3 other math classes! He was so amazing, flexible and understanding! He met with me individually to help me with a few assignments I didn't quite understand. He told us the first day of class that he wanted each of us to succeed, and I think that's something that's rare amongst college professors!

    He has always been so kind and willing to help!

    He is amazing

    Dr. Ryan Luke has been really supportive. Even though he has deadlines he made sure that we reached them and he supported us through all of our work. He truly cares about his students.

    Dr. Luke is smart, enthusiastic and responsive professor who cares about students and is an advocate for social justice. Bravo.

    Excellent instructor, always willing to offer time and assistance to students. Dr. Medina treats his students with great respect and cares a lot about each student's

    Dr. Medina is my faculty favorite because he is constantly looking for new ideas to help the students to connect the content he teaches with our community. His commitment goes beyond his duties as a regular professor designing a Latin Film Festival and a Program Abroad every year.

    Dr. Medina has made an impact on my first year here at UofL. He is friendly makes me feel at home at UofL. He is incredibly kind and helps all of his students know how valuable our education is. He is a caring and accommodating professor who always prioritizes his students' needs. The University of Louisville needs more professors like Dr. Medina.

    Dr. Medina is an outstanding professor, very helpful with his students and former students, always willing to listen, guide and mentor any students who need it or ask him. U of L is very lucky to have this very committed and passionate teacher in their staff.

    A great professor and advisor. He is willing to go above and beyond for his students.

    I am a former student of Dr. Medina's. Dr. Medina deserves this award, as he excelled in teaching about Latin American cinema and helping students grasp materials they had never studied. Dr. Medina was also eager to see his students succeed, and went out of his way to assist them. Dr. Medina also excels at organizing his resources.

    Dr. Medina is one of the best professors I have ever had. He works to ensure that we understand the content and goes above and beyond to help us. I have never been challenged academically the way I have in his classes, which has helped immensely intellectual growth.

    Dr. Medina was one of my best professors throughout my college career. He challenges his students while encouraging creativity. He is incredibly supportive of his students and readily accepts student feedback. While his class was one of my more difficult Spanish courses, I learned more advanced vocabulary, grammar, and history than in any other course.

    Dr. Medina is an outstanding professor! All of the classes that he teaches are very interesting and super fun! He really cares about his students and never hesitates to go the extra mile to help us out! He is the G.O.A.T.(Greatest of all time)!

    Dr. Medina was a kind yet stern instructor who pushed for us to be analytical on our approach to Latin film. I appreciate him for his knowledge and guidance.

    Dr. Medina is a superb professor and advisor. He is challenging and demands a lot from his students, and it's because of that, I always felt like I was able to walk away from his class with so much new knowledge and admiration for the topic studied that semester.

    Dr. Medina is a dedicated instructor who uses different mediums to engage his students. He introduces students to populations and topics that are marginalized and underrepresented. I have taken three of his classes, each covered a broad range of material from different points of view. Dr. Medina is the type of professor that everyone hopes to have.

    Dr. Medina was instrumental in my success as a MA student from 2001-2006 and again from 2017-2019. He cares about his students and instills the highest level of quality in his students and their Spanish abilities.

    Mr. Medina represents a perfect combination of professionalism, altruism, and something comparing with family relationships with students until the level of paternalism. Mister Doctor Medina inspires security and confidence in learning and in what has already been learned.

    I would like to nominate Dr. Medina. He has helped me to be successful both academically and professionally throughout the study at UofL. He recommended me for GTA ship when I asked him about how to get some teaching experience. He was always available for me when I needed guidance and advice.

    Dr. Medina's desire to teach and inspire students goes beyond any limitations. He has been able to make the most of his teaching creativity even during the current pandemic; in addition to his lectures he was able to maintain our beloved Spanish Film Festival-2020 alive, which was very successful this year even though it was presented through the internet.

    Dr. Medina has deeply influenced students' academic life; his attitude towards students is excellent. His principal aim is to make the student fully understand the materials and start their research.

    Dr. Medina is one of the most hard working professors I've encountered at the university. He works hard to create an engaging and comfortable environment for students to understand and critically think about the topics he teaches. My some of my favorite classes I took at the university were his.

    Dr. Medina goes the extra mile to ensure we are able to learn in interesting and applicable ways. He has played a key role in teaching me to look beyond my own point of view which has challenged me to look at the world with different eyes. His use of technology and media has made critical thinking about cultures and ideas something I can bring to everyday life.

    He is the most amazing person and instructor I have ever had in the master's program. He has a lot enthusiasm and dedication to the students' well-being and education. For her, as for many students, Dr. Medina has been a great support and a role model. For many years, he has been the organizer and promoter of the University of Louisville Latin American Film Festival.

    Dr. Medina is quite possibly my favorite professor of all time! His classes are super interactive and engaging! He incorporates various methods of instruction and his utilization of technology is impressive. Dr. Medina is an expert in his subject areas as well as a very supportive and caring instructor. A great all-around professor and human being!

    Dr. Medina was such a great help this semester. Remote learning was hard on all of us but he took the time to ask question and hear concerns on how to better teach remotely. He pushed me until I reach his high standard of excellence and helped me along the way so I didn't get overwhelmed. I am very thankful I had him as my professor this semester.

    Dr. Medina is a fantastic professor who is always willing to help his students. His courses are interesting and challenging and I learned so much in them. I was always excited when I knew that he was teaching a course and he was invaluable in helping me (and several other students at the same time!) with my directed research project for my master's degree.

    Good teacher and involved with the Spanish community of Louisville

    Dr. A has been a phenomenal professor especially during this uncertain and weird time in our world. He was challenging and taught the material well with a genuine concern and desire for his students to learn and succeed in his class. He made it clear that he cared about his students and that means a lot.

    Dr. A has made Biology fun again! He teaches in a way that makes us want to learn but not in a way that makes us feel like we are bad students if we don't understand.

    This man is a BLESSING.

    Dr. A is open to criticism on anything at anytime. He can admit when he makes a mistake and he goes out of his way to get feedback on class to make sure he is doing the best job he can during the semester. I really appreciate all of the work he puts into his class to make learning fun for us. I hope that my teachers in the coming years are even a little bit like Dr. A :)

    This professor makes me feel like he wants me to understand the material and is willing to help if I don't feel confident on any of the material.

    I strongly recommend Dr. Abolins to be a Faculty Favorite, he has made online learning in a pandemic so painless and he genuinely cares about his students. As a first-semester freshman, not all professors were as accommodating as others but he rose above the rest. He makes learning biology fun.

    The Fall 2020 semester was challenging for us all, but Dr. A adapted his 240 course exceptionally well to an all-online environment. He always took the extra time with students, whether it was staying online after lectures, meeting with students via Teams, or even holding multiple exam review sessions over the course of the semester. He truly cares about his students.

    Dr. A always makes sure his students are doing well in the class and replies on time. He's very understanding of personal issues interfering with class work/ times and makes sure we all do our best.

    Dr. Alagaraja is the most helpful instructor I have had at U of L. She goes out of her way to be sure students understand the class content and always provides helpful feedback.

    Beyond explaining tricky concepts, and clear exceptional teaching, Dr. A gives you her cell number and expects for you to use it. Any professor who checks in on you after your dog dies or is happy you're on the call when you texted the night before from the hospital is worth their weight in gold. She is truly invested in her students' wellbeing above and beyond grades.

    Amazing professor that goes the extra mile. She is second to none!

    Dr. Alagaraja is a great instructor committed to the learning of all of her students. She is dedicated, organized, prepared and interested in every aspect of the teaching experience. She also demonstrates a wide experience in the field. Dr. Alagaraja helped me understand the real meaning of working as a consultant and has motivated me to go further in this field.

    Over the years I have known Dr. Alagaraja she has always been extremely supportive and encouraging of me as a student. She often reminds me of what I'm capable of and provides reassurance that I can succeed. Additionally, she has encouraged me to challenge my assumptions and flex outside of my comfort zone. I truly appreciate her as a faculty member and as a mentor.

    Dr. A is a phenomenal educator and human being. She taught so well and continuously helped to re-ignite my passion for research, providing hope and light throughout a dark year. I am not sure I would still be at UofL without her support. Dr. A truly rescued me from despair through her teaching, mentorship, and, above all, genuine compassion and interest in the stories of others.

    This is my third semester at UofL and Khaldoun is by far the best professor I've had in any department. He cares so much about his students and teaching Arabic, it really makes you want to learn and work hard in the class.

    He's always sure to brighten your day!

    Truly passionate about both teaching and Arabic. Easily the best teacher I've had at UofL

    Dr. Almousily is one of the kindest professors I have ever had. He is very open and available to all of his students. What I love the most about Dr. Almousily is his attitude. He radiates positivity and shares it with others daily. He often reminds the class that "life is beautiful" which is not only an important thing to hear, but a special reminder during hard times.

    Professor Almousily is an excellent teacher. His lectures are entertaining and engaging, he has a very positive attitude which is so beneficial for a student, lastly, his leniency during this semester has been so helpful to a lot of students. He is the type of professor that makes class fun and makes you look forward to watching the lectures.

    Awesome guy in general. Loves his students and does everything he can to push us to succeed.

    Professor Khaldoun has done his best with accommodating with students about assignments in this rough time. He has also still found a way to make his class enjoyable to attend. He carries the Arabic department on his back and he sprinkles life stories and life lessons to make every word worth listening to

    I loved how Professor Almousily wanted to get his students enthusiastic about learning Arabic. He was very encouraging and made his lectures entertaining.

    Hands down the greatest professor at the University of Louisville.

    Professor Almousily has changed my life. His enthusiasm is beyond what I have seen from other professors.

    he is the best.

    Literally, the best professor at UofL

    Khaldoun works extra hard to make sure that students understand the topic at hand. In his class, he strives to make every student feel comfortable safe within the environment. Unlike other professors who will easily ignore your request for extra work, he is willing to put in the time. In his class, I always know where I stand and that he is truly advocating for my success.

    Professor Khaldoun Almousily made a positive difference in my life!

    Professor Almousily does not stop at just teaching you the language, he makes sure you really understand it, are able to speak it, and makes learning fun. Not only that, but also he takes time to teach us some of the culture as well. Even over online teaching I learned a lot this semester and really appreciate the work and care he puts into his classes.

    During my studies I always enjoyed Dr. Gentry's classes. I found myself rushing to enroll into her classes. The way her classes are structured kept me wanting to learn. Her classes are very organized, easy to follow, and at the end of the semester I feel that I clearly understand that subject. My overall favorite class I have taken with her was EM 670 EFM and EM 661 ESII.

    I just completed the Engineering Management program and was fortunate to have Dr. Gentry for half of my classes. I've never gained so much knowledge in an academic environment that can be so easily applied in industry. Her classes, and the program as a whole, led to a promotion at my old job and, more recently, a new job. Her, and the EM program, truly enhanced my career.

    Great strides to teach a difficult topic in an accessible way. Could attend virtual/in-class social distanced with masks/watch a recording after class. Epidemiology, difficult topic but we were given lots of opportunities to learn and engage with concepts. Very responsive, always checking in. Communicative and open to communication and feedback. Just a genuinely kind individual who wanted to see us do well.

    Dr. Guinn has made this uncertain and difficult semester one of the best I have ever had. He cares about his students and his top priority is making sure that his students learn and excel. He has inspired me to take more classes in the field of Epidemiology, and I thank him so much for a great semester!

    Professor Brian Guinn was a wonderful instructor who really showed his enthusiasm into Epidemiology, and Public Health, at large. I really enjoyed his classes and learned a lot with the assignments. He is very personable and shows students he cares about their academic experiences.

He even is giving students an extra 30 minutes on the final for "interruptions". His class adaptation and technology choices for the pandemic law school experience has been the easiest transition of all other 1L classes.

    He is an excellent and adaptive professor. Side note, I might have said yes to contacting me if I had known why you would.

    He went above and beyond to make this COVID experience for first-year law students as seamless as possible. He spent the summer coming up with the best possible hybrid set up and was always available with questions and quick to fix anything that was less than helpful. I was so grateful that took that extra time, it made contracts my favorite class.

    Professor Hall taught to all learning styles with and made sure to incorporate as much technology in his classes to help provide visuals and note-taking guides.

    amazing professor! cares about whether her student actually learns or not, which is hard to come by sometimes

    She is by far the best professor I've had here. She takes difficult material and somehow dumbs it down enough for our small brains to understand. She is extremely smart but never makes students feel dumb when asking a question. I tend to not ask questions in any other class except the ones I've been in with Harman. I have not heard a bad thing about her either.

    Dr. Harman is everything you want a professor to be: dedicated, kind, understanding, knowledgeable, and always willing to go the extra mile. She makes some of the most difficult content areas easy to understand by taking the time to talk with students one-on-one to ensure that all of their questions are answered. If anyone deserves to be nominated it is her!

    Dr. Harman is an amazing educator. I could not imagine taking this class with any other professor. Dr. Harman makes learning so relatable and easy for all her students. She does an amazing job of helping us in and out of the classroom whenever we need it. In the lab she answers all our questions, she always replies to emails quickly, and always had office hours available.

    Made the semester a lot easier and taught me more than I have learned in any class I've ever taken. Between lab and biomechanics, I feel very prepared for future courses.

    She has mastered the hybrid courses, having all the documents opened and having fun ways to teach us other than PP. I have a learning disability but she always tried to help me when I didn't understand. My experience with this class (even after failing) is the reason I'm still going to U of L. It gave me hope that I could learn the material and could succeed next time.

    The best professor that I ever had in 4 years of college. very understanding and accessible

    Dr. Harman is literally the best professor I've had here at UofL! She always makes sure her students understand the material and she wants to build relationships with her students. She's really there to help and I appreciate her.

    Dr. Harman is a very understanding professor. She gives students the opportunity to get extra credit and offers extra help in her office hours. She responds very quickly to emails and this is greatly appreciated. She also is very quick with entering grades and this allows student to know where we sit in the class.

    Professor Harman deserves so much credit for her work. She gives students every opportunity to learn while also challenging us. I am so thankful to have had her this semester because not only did she make me excited to learn, she also made expectations clear for her courses in a time when a lot of classes were confusing and unorganized.

    Dr. Harman not only is a fantastic teacher in her subject matter, she also goes above and beyond and is constantly a go to for student who want some faculty mentorship and always knows her students personally.

    Even in trying times she makes an effort to be the absolute best professor she can be. Professor Harman goes above and beyond in making sure her students succeed. It also makes me feel comfortable in the classroom to have a professor that genuinely cares about me as a person. I have a lot of classroom anxiety so it's a good feeling to feel comfortable in the classroom.

    Professor Harman is definitely the best professor that I have ever had. She explains very well, it's notable her passion for the class and teaching which makes the class very easy to learn and understand the content lecture. She is always ready to help and understandable.

    She is the best professor I have had at this university. She is constantly trying her best to teach the course and do it in a way to provide the students with the knowledge we need. She is easy to contact and very energizing in class with great energy. Her class is not easy but I am happy that she was the professor to get us through it.

    Dr. Harman is a really great professor. The subject itself is difficult to grasp, but she makes it so much easier to understand. The way she teaches and her caring personality gives students a lot of room to do well in her class. She is honestly the best professor I've had thus far.

    Kathryn Harman has been my professor for 2 classes now and she is an incredible spirit that motivates her students to perform well. She makes understanding anatomy and physiology easy while also providing the perfect blend of strict and easy in a professor. She continuously shows how much she cares about her students and how much she loves teaching!

    Dr. Harman is truly a wonderful professor. Her ability to teach each and every student is second to none, and it is wonderful to have a teacher that cares not only about students' academic success, but cares about them as people. Dr. Harman's abilities as an educator are simply unmatched, and it has been a privilege to learn from her during my time here.

    She has been the best professor I have ever had. She genuinely cares about every students success and wants to see everyone succeed. She met with me multiple times outside of class, through email, and even on zoom once to help me. Took time out of her own schedule to do so. She was encouraging and helpful and genuinely helped me learn more than I could have asked for.

    She was always willing to help, is super smart, and all around made the class a good time even though it was challenging!

    Great teacher who cares about the well being of her students

    She was very helpful!

    Dr. Harman goes out of her way to make sure that her students are well informed of the information, and teaches in many different ways to make sure everyone is understanding and does this with a positive attitude, punctuality, and always being prepared for class. She is VERY kind and genuinely inspiring, I'm so thankful to have had her as a professor these last few years!

    No

    Dr. Harman made a hard class enjoyable and easy to understand while also being able to interact with students safely to make class fun and enjoyable for students attending her class.

    Dr. Harman displayed a masterful ability to teach students during her lectures, making her biomechanics class and anatomy lab class my most rewarding classes that I have taken in college.

    Dr. Harman is hands down the best professor I've had here at Louisville. She goes above and beyond to make her classes enjoyable and very educational.

    Dr. Harman is always super helpful, I love her teaching style. She always takes time to go around the room and ask students individually what they need help with.

He delivered the content effectively. he explained the topics with examples and reasons. He urged us to think out of the box to implement the techniques of robust control in the real world.

    Dr. Inanc was a very good professor this semester, and always put his student first.

    His classroom presentation greatly simplified learning the material for me. He was always willing to make himself available for students and at the conclusion of the semester I felt confident not only that I'd learned the material, but also that he was instrumental in making that such a natural process.

    Professor Inanc is a very caring teacher who takes the time to teach his materials well. He was quite adaptive to online classes and made allowances to students and changes to his material to promote success in his class. I very much enjoyed taking him this semester.

    Dr. Inanc is always one of my favorite professors. He makes class interesting and is always attentive and ready to answer questions during lectures. Something I noticed this semester was how upset he seemed that we couldn't be in the classroom together but he made the most of the semester online and I really enjoyed it.

He went above and beyond to give us great resources. He created a class chat, which has been the most effective way I've seen anyone work around the remote classes situation. He facilitated an awesome online class environment.

    His lectures were focused and extremely well presented, and he went above and beyond to help students outside of class.

    Without a doubt, Dr. Karem is my favorite professor at Speed School. He is very understanding of his students and makes his course content as realistic and applicable as possible, unlike many other professors.

    I believe Dr. Karem is the best professor I have had in my four years at UofL. I have had two classes with him.His lectures are thorough and his assignments reflect the lectures and his tests reflect the assignments. Even though the tests and assignments have hard content, they are easy to do because he actually covers the material he will later grade us on.

    Dr. Karem is the best professor I have had. His way of teaching brings forth a new approach to material that is the fundamental basis for computer programming. Dr. Karem always kept me interested. Truly a professional that cares for the field of computer science engineering.

    Professor Karem is an extremely good professor. He was always extremely helpful and lectures were always enjoyable. The material was difficult at times but he taught it in a way that was so helpful with understanding the concepts and took a lot out of the class

He's always asking for feedback regarding his classes which shows he really cares about how his teaching is influencing us and how he could do better as a professor.

    He is so concerned about his students. He makes learning enjoyable and makes accommodations when needed in this trying time.

Since I have begun taking her class she has not only made me realize how much I truly love Anthropology as a whole but has also made me realize that my unique interests (specifically forensic anthropology) are not weird. She has validated me in a way that no one ever has before.

    Dr. Marklein is an excellent mentor to all her students, continually taking extra time to help students on an individual level to understand class content and develop applicable career skills. She is always receptive to concerns or struggles that her students are facing and is very encouraging. She is truly an outstanding and dedicated faculty member.

Although I understood that most of my classes had to turn to virtual, no teacher made more of an impact on my semester than Dr. Rabin. Her daily passion and engagement was truly unmatched by my other professors. I am very grateful to have professors at the University of Louisville like Dr. Rabin.

    Dr. Rabin is a really nice professor ! She cares about her students and ensures that information taught throughout the semester is properly learned by her students .

    Dr. Rabin made the most of the online class situation, ensuring to help her students in any way she could. Her use of real life applications for concepts brought a new level of understanding to the classroom.

    Dr. Rabin made learning so much fun. I would recommend her to any biology student.

    Despite difficult times, Dr. Rabin has gone above and beyond for her students! Taking Bio 240 with Dr. Rabin challenged me to think about biology in ways that relate to our world today. Her diligence in making content accessible to her students and being responsive to our learning needs and questions made this my favorite class this semester. Thank you so much, Dr. Rabin!

    Dr. Rabin instructed my first college biology course, and it was my favorite all semester. I barely had any STEM background, yet I was able to learn so much from her. She clearly cares a lot about her students, her field, and effective education. Dr. Rabin is my favorite professor; I'm taking another one of her classes next semester!

    The best teacher I had in my first semester at U of L. She was always open to questions and concerns about the content as well as due dates and such. Her lectures were also very interactive and encouraged discussion and participation. Most importantly, I could tell she truly cared about her students and their success.

    Professor Rabin's BIOL 240 class this fall was my favorite class I've taken here at UofL as well as one of the best organized courses I've completed. Rabin made it clear exactly what information we needed to know, where to find it, as well as making sure every assignment had a purpose and was beneficial to building our understanding of the material.

    Dr. Ralston has put the students first in all things. She cares for us incredibly much and it's been extremely sad for me to see how students' lack of participation has affected her. Nonetheless, she shows those students who put forth the effort so much love every time we see her. She has provided a consistent and rigorous schedule that has made every student better!

    Cares about students Works hard to offer in-personPuts in tons of extra time to cater to variety of student styles during these times

    I've never had a professor who cares about her students and subject like Dr. Ralston. Her door was always open if we needed any help and she would spend extra time working a single problem over and over if even the slightest detail was unclear. It was evident that she cared about our success and was truly in our corner.

I could not imagine a better faculty favorite.

He always had a smile on his face and was ready to help! It was actually really fun being in the radiology clinic!

    Due to Covid, one of our summer classes had to be finished in the spring and the amount of extra time Dr. Santaella spent helping us finish the course and rearranging schedules to get practice time deserves recognition. He moved our competency in order to make sure our group was able to have equal practice. The whole Oral Radiology Department deserves recognition!!!

    Dr. Santaella went above and beyond, staying after hours and working around all our schedules, to get all of us through our radiology rotations/competencies. He cares about us more than any other faculty in my opinion!

    He adapted really well to the online format and has made so many accommodations for us! When we came back in person he had the hands on part very well organized and worked so hard around our other schedules to make our rotations work! He also worked with students if they ever had any concerns, issues or questions. We appreciate his hard work!!

    Dr. Santaella has gone above and beyond as a course director the entire year. He's done everything he can to help our class learn the material and become competent in radiology by adapting well to online and remaining flexible with scheduling. It is evident he cares so much about the students in the school, their education, and their overall wellbeing.

    A professor I have no doubt cares about teaching, he has been so helpful over CODID schedules and truly has students bests interests at heart. He helped us so much as a class and gave up his free time after hours to help us.

    Brad is always positive and makes courses enjoyable yet educational. It is rare to find a faculty who is able to walk the fine line of not stressing students out too much and still getting them the material they need to learn.

    It was a pleasure to be in Dr. Shuck's class. I looked forward to attending his webinars each week. The content was interesting and applicable. He afforded people the opportunity to use what they learned in their current work centers and offered constant support. His genuine demeanor facilitated open and honest conversations. Glad my path has crossed with his.

    Mollie is my favorite Professor I've had thus far in college! She is seriously the best!!!

    She has done everything in her power to give us the most normal and beneficial experience during covid that she can. This is her first year teaching at UofL and she never let her lack of experience get in her way. She reached out to other faculty, asked students and studied in her free time until she knew the ins and outs of every program and online source available to us.

    Mollie did an outstanding job working with our class and encouraging participation despite challenges with covid and working remote.

    After a frustrating past year beginning a brand-new program while under forced learning from home, Mollie put the whole class at ease. Mollie incorporated her past education experience to build a structured and cohesive virtual class. She wanted us to succeed, and it showed. Our education and cohort relationships mattered to her.

    Dr. Whetstone who is a great professor who really shows compassion for his students and the subject he teaches. I took his LEAD 315 class and really enjoyed what it had to offer and what he had to teach about it.

    Dr. Whetstone taught two of my courses this semester. He was patient, reassuring, encouraging and through it all, taught great content. His feedback was immediate and educational and even though these were online courses, he offered and held zoom meetings so that we could interact and learn further. I can't say enough about how supportive he was of all of the students.

    Mrs. Whitaker was my go to person to ask questions to. The way she explained things really made sense to me. I can tell she is a dedicated instructor and I'm sure an amazing nurse the way she pays attention to details. She was willing to do whatever she could to help me understand and succeed. She is someone I hope to be like as a nurse in my future.

    Mrs. Whittaker is the go-to for OB nursing! She is extremely knowledgeable in the subject and successfully finds a way to deliver this information (that to many of us is brand new) in an effective manner. I'm extremely thankful to have had the chance to learn from her.

    Dr. Wieland was very organized and prepared to discuss course content each day. Very engaging and enthusiastic about the course (LEAD 661). Best first impression I could hope for starting out in the program.

    Professor John Wieland is a rock star. He can take any subject, twist it and make it exciting. He goes above and beyond to make sure students understand the concept. Very approachable and professional.

    Really enjoyed taking his courses and he taught them well!

    Wright easily puts the most apparent effort into communicating clearly with his students and ensuring everyone has access to the proper resources, information, and/or guidance they need to do well in any of his classes.

    Dr. Wright goes above and beyond to ensure students are understanding important information. Our class never had the chance to meet in person, but Dr. Wright never failed to make every student feel important and special. I appreciate his concern for us during troubling times this semester. My time in the CIS department wouldn't be the same without him and his impact.

    Wu Laoshi is amazing!!! She makes class fun and interesting and is very understanding. I've had other professors who are not very understanding so Wu Laoshi is like a breath of fresh air.

    She's literally the best professor I've had at UofL. Every semester I take a Chinese class and learn so much because of her. She is the most caring, and selfless professor I've ever had. She has been understanding in terms of Covid situations and adapting to our personal lives, and she always goes out of our way to help us learn the language in many different ways.

    Can't speak highly enough of Dr. Wu. She goes out of her way to help us understand the content and provided an immersive learning environment even during a pandemic. My Chinese skills have grown tremendously after taking her class.

    An awesome and understanding professor. Great material presented, challenging material but overall awesome class that he teaches (CSE 545). I put in a lot of work this semester but felt like I learned a lot.

    Dr. Yampolskiy is the beat! He is incredibly knowledgeable in his field and also very understanding of students needs and willing to work with student to help them succeed.

    Dr. Yampolskiy is the most incredible teacher I have ever had. He transferred his passion for AI to all of us and his desire to further the field. After taking his class, I feel like I can change the world through good science and original research. I can not recommend him more highly.

    I absolutely love the way he structured my class and he taught everything in such a way that it was easy to understand, yet still rigorous enough to be a challenging class. I have rarely learned as much in a class as I have in this one out of my 3 years of being in college.

    The best professor on campus!

    This is my second graduate program and I haven't had a professor I enjoyed working with as much as Dr. Yampolskiy. What sets him apart from his peers is his passion for the subject matter and drive to help his students not only succeed, but excel. He's the obvious thumbs up here.

    I enjoyed my time in his class. He was always very helpful and made the experience fun.

    He is very the kindest professor I've had at UofL. He makes a great effort in connecting with his students, and making sure everyone is understanding the material. He is super accessible, and always responds to emails incredibly fast. He always is looking for new ways to improve our understanding of the material. He is an all-around top professor.

    Makes programming relevant and engaging. Provides resources for student continued learning.

    Dr. Yampolskiy, was extremely knowledgeable, always willing to help out, responded to questions quickly and was overall an outstanding professor. He is above and beyond what you expect for a college professor.

    I can say nothing but wonderful things about Dr. Yoder-Himes. During such an odd semester, she showed each student compassion while maintaining rigor. She truly cares about her students and does a terrific job teaching a difficult topic. Dr. Yoder-Himes even started a COVID-19 journal club with students to discuss scientific research! She is truly in a league of her own.

    Dr. Yoder-Himes is a phenomenal professor for my BIOL 457: Microbiology course. Dr. Yoder-Himes works hard to simplify challenging topics for her students and is dedicated to helping her students learn.
