Biology professor wins national award
June 25, 2007
Peter D. Weigl, professor of biology at Wake Forest University, was awarded the Joseph Grinnell Award for Excellence in Education by the American Society of Mammalogists at its annual meeting June 6-10 in Albuquerque, N.M.
The Joseph Grinnell Award was established by the society’s board of directors in 1996 to honor individuals who have made outstanding and sustained contributions to education in mammalogy over a period of at least 10 years. The award recognizes excellence in education in the broadest sense. It encompasses not only the traditional roles of teaching in graduate and undergraduate institutions, but also education activities such as production of materials for federal, state or local agencies, public education through creations of museum displays and enhancement or encouragement of education through stewardship activities.
Weigl joined the Wake Forest faculty in 1968.
