Eastern Illinois University’s (EIU) Jeffrey Boshart has been named the 2013 Illinois Professor of the Year by The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.

The professor of the year program salutes the most outstanding undergraduate instructors in the country — those who excel in teaching and positively influence the lives and careers of students. Boshart was selected from 350 top professors in the United States.

"I have spent my career striving to become a better teacher, mentor and student-centered activist, asking myself, 'How can I help my students engage their profession, achieve better results and find success in their chosen field sooner?'"

Boshart joined the EIU Department of Art in 1988. He is primarily a sculptor, and he also engages in drawing, watercolor, photography, and various other forms of art as situations dictate.
