Date: May 11, 2012
Nominated by: Lisa Norwood

Accomplishment: Noticing the high amount of MTW Letters for HSEAS Students in PHY121, assessing the risk factor of withdrawal and failure in the students, and creating a positive working environment with the physics department in which the students were given more assistance in preparation for the final exam.

Benefit to the Hajim School: Avoiding the scenario of a large number of freshmen needing to either petition to take PHY122 with a grade less than C-, retake it next spring and be behind, or take it over the summer, very likely resulting in more students on academic probation and/or feeling that they have to switch out of their HSEAS major in order to graduate "on time".
