    Dr. Guinn is the best!!

    Dr. Guinn has gone above and beyond to help each of his students. He is extremely understanding and always has a great attitude. He makes me excited to come to class and learn the content.

    Dr. Guinn is such a nice teacher. He is approachable, understanding, and willing to help. He meets you where you are at educationally, and he wants to see his students succeed. He has been very helpful making sure students knew their information for his class and also knew what resources they had available to them through the university.

    Brian Guinn has been the best professor. He encourages his students to be great. He genuinely cares about our education. He also helps his students when they are having issues with other classes and he cares about mental health.

    Honestly one of the best professors I've had. He makes me feel comfortable in his class and I feel like I've learned a lot from him. He's the first professor I've had that offers constant encouragement and praise for their students. He's always complimenting everyone on what they do good. He takes the time to learn every student's name and finds something to talk about.

    Dr. Guinn put learning first in his classroom. He worked to make sure students understood the content and was always understanding if you contacted him about an issue you were having in class.

    He taught my public health epidemiology course this semester and made it the most enjoyable class I have had all semester. I am truly lucky to have experienced such an amazing teacher that can help any student succeed.

    Brian Guinn is absolutely more than a professor--he is a mentor and father figure to every student he teachers whether he realizes it or not. He motivates students to go above and beyond in our studies. He emphasizes the idea that we are more than our GPA and encourages us to make big goals because they are possible!!

He is the only professor that I felt GENUINELY cared for the success and wellbeing of his students. He has given me very useful life advice and put some of my career anxieties at bay. He has also gone out of his way to connect me with other people.

    Mrs. Baisch always made her students feel important and was always willing to go the extra mile to help us. She is caring and compassionate and we all knew we could go to her for anything we needed. She is truly an amazing professor and mentor!

    Mrs. Baisch is one of the best instructors I have had in my undergraduate career. She not only takes the time to check in on students and make sure they are doing okay, but also offers herself as a resource we can come to. Nursing school is not easy, but she makes it feel a lot less overwhelming with her kind-hearted and lively personality that is just so contagious.

  • Click to Show/HideBrad Shuck
    Educational Leadership, Evaluation and Organizational Development
    College of Education and Human Development
    I couldn't have asked for a more communicative and supportive professor. He constantly cheered us on and told us how proud of us he was for doing the work and completing the program. He gave feedback that was appreciative and meaningful and it really showed he took the time to read it. Brad was the perfect person to end these last two transformative years with.

    He is super positive and easy to work with. Dr. Shuck helped me focus my efforts while still enjoying the research.

    Dr. Shuck was always available to assist when I reached out during the program. Not only did he help, he made me feel like he was truly there to help us succeed - which is hard to do in a virtual environment. During his class, he also laid out the assignments in a manner that helped make the course work flow and greatly helped in my understanding of how it all connected.

    Professor Shuck was very encouraging. He was very knowledgeable in the subject. When I was not sure about the requirements of the HAT he explained it to me in a one-on-one session. This helped take away my anxiety about the project and helped me get back on track.

    He was very open during the course and easy to contact.

    Dr. Shuck has been an incredible support during my last course in the HROD program (Capstone). Even though it was an asynchronous course, he was in constant contact and provided great direction and support. He was always available to answer questions quickly and put us at ease in a high stress course. I appreciate his encouragement and learning from him this semester.

    Brad has been excellent as my advisor and my professor throughout the HROD program. He has been so helpful, encouraging, motivating, and supportive! I have never had a professor or advisor throughout my college career be so uplifting and really care for their students as much as he does!

    He was the nicest professor I've had. I enjoyed all of my classes and all of my professors but I thought Dr. Shuck was the most supportive and encouraging teacher I had. He really wanted us to succeed and do well in the course. Would recommend him to anybody.

    Dr. Shuck is a great instructor and academic advisor! He was very helpful during my entire time at the University of Louisville.

    Dr. Shuck is a great educator, mentor, and motivator! He deserves this award!

    Dr. Shuck is an amazing professor! My first and last course of my graduate program was with Dr. Shuck. He genuinely cares for his students, has a passion for what he does, and wants to help students learn, grow, and be better for themselves and our community. I couldn't think of anyone else to nominate. He deserves to be recognized. Thank you for inspiring me.

    Dr. Shuck was one of the initial reasons I began to pursue my masters degree. As he taught our capstone course he never failed to be uplifting, encouraging, and to provide insightful advice that will have an impact on my future career.

    Dr. Shuck is one of the most positive and motivating professors I've had this Spring semester. He's made a lasting impression during my time here at UoL. I have an overwhelming amount of gratitude for this program and professors, but especially professors such as Dr. Shuck who have shaped my experience despite it being a virtual environment.

    Great instructor and mentor!

Favorite quote: "You all have hearts of gold!"

    Professors Almousily is an amazing professor from his passion for teaching that shines through when we have a class. He also wants us to try our best no matter how many times we get something incorrect. He has a great personality as well that makes class and learning fun for his students.

    Professor Almousily always comes to class clearly excited to teach and presents himself in a way thats much less daunting than other professors making him much easier to approach and communicate with.

    Professor Almousily is truly one of the best professors I have ever had. He makes learning a language as difficult as Arabic a joy. He engages students in every corner of the classroom. He cares for his students and works with them, not against them. Learning under Professor Almousily has been such a great experience and I look forward to future classes with him.

    I can say without a doubt he is the best professor I've ever had. Classes are structured to maximize participation from all students and he ensures we understand difficult material before moving on. You can tell how enthusiastic and passionate he is every day and is truly an amazing educator. I can't imagine a more hardworking and deserving person to receive a nomination.

    I love professor Khaldoun! He is always happy and makes everyone in the room laugh. He is always positive and has many funny stories to tell. Definitely makes the Arabic department much more fun!

    Khaldoun is an incredible professor who takes time to listen to his students and accommodate for needs, even virtually.

    Professor khaldoun is a great professor that cares about his students. He will devote extra time outside class to ensure that all of us have the right materials to be successful. He is always willing to help no matter the circumstances. It's not common to have a professor that treats you as a student and a friend.

    Khaldoun is a professor unlike no other. He goes above and beyond when it comes to his students. His lectures are engaging and exciting, giving everyone opportunity to show what they've learned. The environment in his classroom is welcoming and he really makes you feel like you are apart of something bigger.

    Professor Almousily is, in fact, the greatest personality on campus. He makes his class a home for all his students, and his teaching style is incredible, makes me want to learn. He is a professor, a mentor, a friend, and a role model all wrapped into one.

    Professor Khaldoun is one of the most passionate professors I have had at the University of Louisville. There was never a day in class where he wasn't excited to be there and teach us the Arabic language. His positive energy and interactive lectures made learning fun and engaging.

    Very engaging professor and truly cares and looks out for his students. Each class is better than the next.

    Dr. Almousily is one of the most caring and compassionate professors I've ever had. His charisma about Arabic and ability to convey material in an engaging way is something I'm lucky to experience in the classroom.

    Professor Khaldoun is one of the best professors I have had. He is truly amazing. He listens to his students, is willing to help them in any way, and is always optimistic no matter what he may be enduring.

    I am taking Arabic 121 online this semester with Professor Almousily. He is a very effective teacher, and his lectures are both very educational and entertaining. He's definitely the best foreign language teacher I've had!

    Professor Almousily's ability to connect with his students and his talent at teaching simple concepts, as well as more advanced topics, are both truly superior. He is, by far, the best professor UofL has.

    I felt comfortable and pushed myself to learn, grow and practice language with native speakers because I felt respected, comfortable, and safe. I felt that Khaldoun actually cares about his students which made me take the risks necessary to venture out of my comfort zones, make mistakes, and learn!

    Best teacher. Each time I enter his classroom I can't leave without a smile

    It was a great class

    Dr. Berfield cares deeply for his students and their education. His teaching is applicable to the real world; rather than just memorizing equations, we have learned about case studies where materials failed.

    Greatest professor ever - kind, incredibly smart, understanding, and deeply caring towards her students.

    She always spends extra time explaining concepts to students and uplifts us even more than she teaches us. She does an excellent job leading the CADE curriculum.

    Best teacher I've ever had, she's amazing!

    Dr. B is literally the best professor I've ever had in all my years of teaching. She is a credit to this program and a godsend to the students that are honored to share her presence. I'm not sure when she finds the time to sleep because she is always working hard to make sure we get the best education possible, and everyone here is better for it.

    Dr. B has made one of the most academically challenging points in my life smoother and more enjoyable than I thought possible. She is an unwavering positive force in M1's students lives and is a warm and supportive person who is greatly appreciated.

    375 characters is not enough to describe Dr. B's impact on the class of 2025. She has all the answers for our questions and all the right words to alleviate our stresses. I felt at home under her care and instruction. I hate having to choose "my favorite", but if I must, I choose Dr. B. Thank you for putting medical school into perspective and for believing in us.

She pushes her students to succeed & believes in us. I wish she wasn't retiring so I could take more of her classes. Any student who has been fortunate enough to study under her is truly lucky.

    Dr. Buchanan is a true treasure to UofL. She cares deeply about her student's success and treats them as if they're her own children. Her devotion to her profession is extremely admirable and anyone is lucky to have her as a professor. She will truly be missed when she retires.

    He is always there to help his students and makes sure everyone understands the content. He has by far been my best professor. I came into his class with 0 background knowledge and was able to excel in the class.He also tries to throw in a few funny things to make class enjoyable. He is the only professor that I don't get bored with even though he was over an hour lecture.

    Dr. Chastain explains complicated concepts clearly and effectively while keeping the class engaged and facilitating an active learning environment. He takes extra time to talk to students who are having trouble in class to ensure that they understand the content and can be successful in the course.

    One of the most effective professors I've ever had; very understanding and gives students the confidence to succeed.

    His teaching style is the best out of all the classes I have taken at U of L so far. You get an assignment calendar, know what's on the exam and can get help during office hours or in the PLC and the professor is very responsive through email as well. As long as a student stays on track with the material, they can be successful in this class easily!

    Professor Chastain is the best, hands down.

    I always looked forward to Dr. Chastain's class. I had never taken physics before, but he made the class so interesting and fun. I loved the way the class was structured.

    The best, most attentive professor I've ever had.

    Dr. Ellis brings enthusiasm & interest to every single one of his lectures. The content he teaches would be dry & much more difficult if presented by anyone with less care & creativity. He is a master of showing us how everything is both interconnected & relevant. My experience in medical school would not be the same without him.

    Ellis was a saving grace. His material was very complex and he would explain it on a level we could understand, provide reasoning for why it was relevant to dentistry, and made learning biochem fun!

    Dr. Ellis has single-handedly improved the education of many medical students over the years during the MBLDD course. When a lecturer falls through, he takes it upon himself to fill in. He takes the time to slowly build concepts instead of going through 50 slides in 30 minutes.

    I loved the way you taught the class and was very sad that I couldn't be in your 102 class next semester. English is usually my weakest and most stressful subject, but your class was my favorite and not stressful at all, I really enjoyed coming to it and learned a lot from it! Thank you!

    Dr. Ennis' teaching style and course structure make the class as easy as it can be. She ensures that students are not doing more work than necessary. Dr. Ennis encourages her students to collaborate with each other for guidance and inspiration. She can be reached outside of class hours easily and understands that her students have a life outside of school.

    As an engineering major, I was not sure that I would be able to enjoy an English class. However, I found Dr. Ennis's teaching style to be very effective and her personality was so positive. I found myself enjoying going to her class because she always made me smile and was very approachable. After her class, I would always feel refreshed. This teacher is so amazing!

    Dr. Ennis shows so much love and care for her students. She lets us work independently and keeps class light and fun.

    I am astounded by Dr. Falcone's ability to help students learn difficult material. I am thankful that he is my professor because he has helped me understand complex concepts within my 605 course without showing bias or dissatisfaction in not understanding. He goes out of his way to hold study sessions outside of class and I always feel comfortable in asking him for help.

    Dr. Falcone was always there to answer our questions even if it was related to other instructors in Physiology.

    Dr. Falcone made the difficult renal physiology easy to understand. He knows how to engage the students.

    Dr. Falcone goes ABOVE and BEYOND for students! In addition to the time he dedicates to teaching in the classroom, Dr. Falcone holds Zoom sessions outside of class (on his own time) for reviews. Dr. Falcone truly helps students by giving us all the resources we could need to succeed. If I could ask Dr. Falcone to teach every subject, I would! Amazing professor and person!

    Dr. Falcone regularly strives to do everything he can to ensure his students learn to the best of their abilities. That means when class is finished, his work is not done. He not only holds extra office hours multiple times throughout the week to ensure excellence in the content, as well as meeting 1-on-1 if needed. I have never had such a passionate professor.

    Understanding and friendly.

    Overall I think Professor Franco is an alright teacher. I felt like I understood the content in the class but I also feel that was only because I had already taken AP Chemistry in high school, so I was already familiar with the subjects.

    Dr. Franco is my favorite professor by far. Even though the class was distance ed, she would always take her time to make sure each student is doing their best in the class. If you ever had any problems, she would take her time to explain the material until you understand what it is about. She deserves to be one of the Top nominees.

    She is truly one of the best professors I have had at UofL so far. I love her enthusiasm towards the classes, and it makes me enjoy attending class. She is also very understanding and always available if you need help.

    Professor Harman is the smartest, most dedicated professor I have ever had. She lectures based on the profound knowledge she has learned over the years. I am extremely proud to say she knows me by name and through the extensive classes I have taken with her. I believe she deserves this and so much more.

    Dr. Harman is one of my favorite professors! As a transfer student I was very nervous coming in to a university and she made my transition much easier to be productive moving forward. She made biomechanics fun and exciting and there was not one time where she was not willing to help me.

    Dr. Harman has always welcomed me back (failed 2x) with a smile and tried twice as hard to help me understand the material. Even when I'd give up on myself, she never gave up on me. Dr. Harman may not see it/realize that she is the definition of the kind of professor that we look back at our lives once we reach our goals and say thank you to. Because she believed in us.

    Dr. Harman is one of the best professors I have had here at the University of Louisville. She truly cares about her students and you can tell how passionate she is about what she is teaching. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be taught by her for two semesters.

    Professor Harman is one of the best teachers I have ever had. She takes pride in her work and is very successful at teaching students. In my personal experience, I wouldn't have been as successful if it wasn't for her willingness to help me succeed.

    I've had Dr. Harman for biomechanics and anatomy 1 lab and she has been amazing! She helps her students understand the material and takes time outside of normal class to hold open lab sessions and is always available if we need help. She's the best professor I've had at Louisville. She's so kind and is a wonderful person overall.

    She is an amazing professor and has helped me so much this year. She teaches in a way that is easy to comprehend.

    Very understanding and helpful. Definitely a challenging class but I am confident that I will be better prepared going into grad school because of Dr. Harman

    She genuinely cares about her students' success, both while she is teaching them and after they graduate. She goes above and beyond for her students and her hard work does not go unnoticed. Her teaching style is makes it so easy for me to comprehend and learn new material. She is a great professor and I wish she taught all my classes.

    Dr. Harman is the best professor at the University of Louisville. This professor is always positive with lots of energy every single day in class. She is an expert in her field and is willing to answer any question any student has. She is easily accessible and I will always remember this professor even after graduation.

    Dr. Harman has been such a huge help to me as I take my harder exercise science courses. She provides ample examples, lectures, presentations, and homework that helped me fully grasp the content. Dr. Harman definitely puts her students needs above her own and I am so thankful for her.

    Dr. Harman is a terrific professor! You can tell she puts a lot of thought and effort into her lectures and in her students. Although she teaches a very difficult subject, she is able to explain it in terms that students can easily learn. Inside and outside of the classroom, she was always willing to help. She was by far my favorite professor throughout my college career!

    I had Prof. Harman for two of my classes this semester and she has by far been one of the most understanding professors I've had to date. I struggled a lot with my physical and mental health in the back half of the semester and she ensured I got through the rest of the semester in one piece.

    Very well organized and gives her student every opportunity to succeed. But she doesn't stop there; she helps her students make connections and develop a plan to move forward.

    Throughout the semester, Professor Harman always encouraged us, made class fun by using mnemonics, and created an all-around great space for learning. She was always available outside of class, and helped me get in touch with great sources for internship opportunities.

    Dr. Harman by far has been my best professor in my entire three years at UofL. Her dedication and passion for teaching and checking on her students means so much to everyone! You can tell she loves what she does and really makes sure her students are okay not just with the material, but also with life in general. Dr. Harman is the best!

    She is incredibly intelligent and is always there for the students. Her bright and welcoming energy makes for a wonderful learning environment.

    Dr. Harman always goes above and beyond to ensure her students understand the material and succeed. She is a great professor and needs to be acknowledged for her hard work.

    Harman is my number one most favorite professor ever! She makes learning fun & she really cares about every student! Her class content is hard material to learn but she helps us understand the material! Her personality is top tier! You can tell she 100% knows her stuff when she teaches, she doesn't just read off a PowerPoint, she gives us great ways to learn the material!

    All around, I love her attitude when teaching. Never had a bad class with her. She's very knowledgable and helpful.

    Professor Harman was a huge reason for my success in this course.

    She is a great professor, teaches well, is organized, and has a very good understanding of all the courses she teaches.

    Super helpful professor who made hard classes a lot more enjoyable and easier to understand. Always super helpful and easy to reach out to when help was needed

    I always love having Dr. Harman as a professor, and I get so much out of her courses!

    Dr.Harman is been one of the biggest reasons for my success at the university, as she is always willing to do whatever it is for her students so that they can succeed. Even while teaching some of the hardest classes in the department, she always has the best interests of her students in mind.

    Very understanding and enthusiastic professor that gives such interesting lectures. My favorite professor that I have had the pleasure of experiencing.

    Dr. Lauf is very understanding and cares about his students' academic success. I have not had any problems in his courses so far. I am looking forward to taking some classes with him in the future.

    I strongly recommend Professor Adrian Lauf as favorite instructor, because his course material is interesting. He knows how to engage students during the lecture and doesn't let them get bored and sleepy. He is easy to reach and listens to suggestions.

    He is an excellent teacher who truly cares about his students.

    Extremely driven toward giving his students a fair, educational, and fun experience. Always striving to improve the learning process for his students. Involved in what I swear is half the projects and endeavors in his department.

    Dr. Lauf is quite possibly one of the BEST teachers that I have had in my college career. He is very understanding towards students' needs and tries his best to satisfy everyone. His material in CSE 525(only class I took with him) is explained in a manner that is clear and precise. My overall experience of the class and Dr. Lauf has been overly positive.

    In my opinion, Dr. Metz is by far the most engaging professor. She cares more than anyone else, and even teaches us to a level that is unique. I can't say enough about her.

    Dr. Metz utilized group activities to actually reason through the material. Not many professors organize enough to do anything but read off slides. Dr. Metz goes above and beyond to make sure that we are prepared for our practice as clinicians.

    Dr. Metz is nothing short of AMAZING. Great lecturer and a genuine person. She's always prepared and truly cares about her students' success. She makes her lectures engaging so that our time spent in class is actually worthwhile. About 80% of the material is learned in class while she is teaching, which greatly decreases studying time. We need a Dr.Metz for every class!

    Not only was Dr. Metz by far the most effective professor I have had at UofL so far, she is also one of the most effective I've ever had.

She provides space to have valuable open-class discussions and encourages all students to speak their opinion on the subject. She is extremely knowledgeable about the content and it shows in her delivery of the material.

    She's funny, refreshing, kind and yet witty when it's needed. She always has references of material to pop-culture and great stories to help the class memorize the important details. Dr. Ross is passionate about what she teaches and more-so most importantly passionate about teaching. She cares, she understands and most above of she hears people out.

    Ross always made sure to keep the lecture hall involved by using examples in class each of us could understood. She definitely made my first semester fun!

    Professor Ross made the class really fun and makes the content just come too life. That, and she is really nice and fun to watch.

She is a great teacher to take as a freshman even though I am a junior because she sets the tone of needing to study to pass your classes which will help student prepare for their future classes.

Her class can be a challenge and it made me work hard, but it was worth it.

    Professor Lynn Usher is by far the best teacher I have ever had. She is engaging, down to earth, and expects you to work hard and earn your grade. I barely retained anything from my other COB classes, but microeconomics is something that I will use forever, purely due to the way that Prof. Usher teaches.

    Fantastic teacher! She has a great personality and helps students understand economics.

    Mrs. Usher made economics an enjoyable class for me. At the beginning of the semester, I was extremely nervous about taking economics but her approach and charisma about teaching rubbed off on me and in the end, I wanted to come to every class no matter the weather or how tired I was.

    Lynn Usher is without a doubt the best Professor I have EVER had. She brings a great energy to class that no other professor has shown me at UofL. The fact that UofL C.o.B. is firing her is disgusting. They just lost one of their best professors in the school who genuinely loves teaching. Our Loss.

    She is an amazing professor and makes class so fun. Always has a story to tell to help us remember what graphs and terms mean. She wants us to learn. I recommended her to all of my friends to take this upcoming year.

    Not always the most entertaining but she has her own funny sense of humor that she expresses throughout her lectures. She likes to challenge her students and is very effective with her lectures and powerpoints.

    Professor Usher showed that she genuinely cares about each and every one of her students. She did not want to see any student fail and therefore gave students every possible opportunity that they would need to succeed in her class.

    Amazing teacher that made accounting enjoyable to learn. Was always willing to help students who were willing to put in the extra work. Very understanding of people's situations and would make adjustments when needed.

    Love her! Great teacher, personable, fun, want to take her out to lunch. I felt bad when I missed her class.

    She has been an amazing teacher and has always wanted us to always do our best. I will miss you and I hope that you have a nice time in Alabama!

    She's cool !

    Christine did an excellent job teaching a difficult subject on an online platform. She responded to questions promptly and always gave us what we needed to succeed. I had a great experience in her class and am thankful for her expertise on the subject matter.

    Smooth and effective lectures that follow and complement course materials nicely, projects that encourage innovation and exploration, provides lots of room for technical and philosophical growth, fair grading that rewards positives more than it punishes negatives, always open to communication and deliberation.

    A great professor that takes time to make sure that students have full understanding of what is being taught.

    Good person and good teacher.

    Good.

    I thoroughly enjoyed going to his class. It was always to the point, and easier to grasp and understand. He is also totally supportive and always open for any sort of doubt clarifications and discussions.

    Great professor with an even better beard.

    Pretty good.

    He is a very perfect teacher and the most fantastic advisor one can possibly have!

    Makes sure that each student throughly understands each concept in the class, and is aware that analytical chemistry can become a difficult subject. Makes sure he explains as clearly as possible, and puts emphasis on clearly explaining difficult concepts in an easier way. Encourages us to do research in his lab to have an opportunity to apply our chemistry knowledge.
