GREENCASTLE -

DePauw University associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry Dan Gurnon is being honored today in Washington D.C. as the 2015 Indiana Professor of the Year. The awards from the Carnegie Foundation and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education aim to salute "the most outstanding undergraduate instructors in the country."

Gurnon's particular area of interest is visualizing the submicroscopic world. He is also director of the Science Research Fellows honors program. That initiative allows students interested in science to get significant hands-on research experience. The winners were honored at a luncheon today in the nation's capital at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.

The Council for Advancement and Support of Education organized two panels of judges to select the Professor of the Year award finalists. The Carnegie Foundation assembled the final panel, which selected the state winners.

?The organizations have been presenting the awards since 1981.
