Yu Cai, professor and associate chair in the Department of Applied Computing, and Guy Hembroff, associate professor in the Department of Applied Computing, are recipients of this year’s Provost’s Award for Sustained Teaching Excellence (PASTE). This award provides special recognition to instructors who have been nominated as finalists for the Distinguished Teaching Awards four or more times.

“Michigan Tech highly values excellence in teaching and we are fortunate to have many outstanding instructors working with our students,” said Andrew Storer, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “Yu Cai and Guy Hembroff exemplify sustained records of excellence in teaching though repeatedly qualifying as finalists for our highly competitive University teaching awards. We are very proud to recognize them with the PASTE award in recognition of their extraordinary continued efforts to help support the success of Michigan Tech students.”

Cai and Hembroff will receive their award, which includes a plaque and $2,000 in additional compensation, at the Academy of Teaching Excellence event on April 4. Each recipient is also a member of Michigan Tech’s Distinguished Teaching Academy, an elite group with an established reputation for excellent teaching.
