Nov. 15, 2014 – Donald J. Orth, the Thomas H. Jones Professor in the Department of Fish and Wildlife Conservation, was honored with both the university’s Diggs Teaching Scholars Award and William E. Wine Achievement Award.

Sponsored by the Center for Instructional Development and Educational Research, the Diggs Teaching Scholars Award recognizes exceptional contributions to the teaching program and learning environment. The William E. Wine Achievement Award honors a history of university teaching excellence; recipients receive $2,000 and are inducted in the Academy of Teaching Excellence.

Orth has taught numerous courses — from the first-year to the graduate level — and served as department head for seven years. He led the effort to institute the college’s first-year experience program, which was recognized with a University Exemplary Program Award in 2013. He has received numerous individual awards, including two Certificates of Teaching Excellence and three Outstanding Faculty Awards.
