KIMBERLY SCHMUDE This year, one of the University’s Outstanding Teacher awards was presented to a pharmacy faculty member, Dr. Kim Schmude. Dr. Schmude, a clinical associate lecturer in the Department of Pharmacy Practice, is a dedicated pharmacy practitioner who continues to have a positive impact on the health of our community through her work. Her influence on College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences students is made apparent by the multiple nominations she received for this University honor. Dr. Schmude’s nominators lauded her willingness to help students, her approachability, and her concern for student success; students aspire to emulate her good humor, professionalism and passion for patient care. The students’ admiration for Dr. Schmude was visible at the Ohio Pharmacists Association OTC competition, where student competitors wore “What Would Schmude Do?” t-shirts. Recipients of The University of Toledo’s Outstanding Teacher Award receive a cash award of $1500. Outstanding Teachers are selected by a committee of UT instructors and a student representative, who review nominations confidentially. Up to six full-time faculty members are selected annually. Dr. Christine Hinko, who is the college’s associate dean of Student Affairs and professor of pharmacology, was honored with the University’s Outstanding Adviser Award for 2011. Dr. Hinko considers advising essential to the University’s mission as a diverse, student-centered public metropolitan research university. Her nomination demonstrates that advising is indeed among the most important aspects of her work at UT, and her commitment to the success of our students is greatly appreciated.
