Okos Inducted into the Purdue Book of Great Teachers

The Book of Great Teachers, a permanent wall display in the west foyer of the Purdue Memorial Union, is an extension of Academy Park. It was dedicated in 1999. Since 1997, more than 200 faculty and instructors have been recognized and inducted into the Teaching Academy

The book bears the names of faculty members, past and present, who have devoted their lives to sustained excellence in teaching and scholarship. They were chosen by their students and their peers as Purdue’s finest educators. The nomination process for inclusion in this book is repeated every five years.

This fall, Dr. Martin Okos, joined Dr. Gary Krutz, Dr. Ed Monke (retired), and Dr. Bernard Tao in this select achievement. Congratulations!
