Eric Hudson, Associate Professor of Physics and Associate Head for Diversity and Equity, has received the 2017 C. I. Noll Award for Excellence in Teaching. The award is named in honor of Clarence I. Noll, dean of the college from 1965 to 1971, and is the highest honor for undergraduate teaching in the college. Outstanding faculty members who best exemplify the key characteristics of a Penn State educator are nominated by students, faculty members, and alumni.  The selection committee is entirely comprised of students. Professor Hudson has received many other awards for teaching and promotion of diversity in the past, including the Penn State Society of Physics Students Faculty Teaching Award in 2013, the MIT Excellence Award for Fostering Diversity and Inclusion in 2009, the MIT Everett Moore Baker Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching in 2008, the Irwin Sizer Award for Significant Improvement to MIT Education in 2008, and the MIT Buechner Teaching Prize in Physics in 2007.
