Physics Illinois takes great pride in the dedication, professionalism, and plain hard work of the scholars that meet one of our core missions—teaching. Each semester, the University's Center for Teaching Excellence polls our toughest critics—the students who take Physics classes—and asks them to assess the skills and effectiveness of their teachers. Only the very best make this list.
