The athletic department would like to acknowledge this year’s winners of the Difference Award. Each year, student-athletes nominate a UP professor who has made a difference in their lives. The definition is left intentionally vague, allowing students to reflect on the many ways a professor may have made a difference to them. This year, four professors were selected as our winners:
- Steven Cook, physics
- Paddy McShane, philosophy
- Lydia Towell, mathematics
- Shazib Vijlee, engineering
These individuals will be honored at the men’s basketball game on Thursday, February 16, at 7 p.m., in the Chiles Center. Please come out and enjoy the game and congratulate our winners for their support of all students on campus, including our student-athletes.
