Susan Shadle has been named a Boise State Distinguished Professor.
This title constitutes one of the highest honors that may be given to a faculty member at Boise State University and is reserved for a small number of faculty who have made major contributions to their academic disciplines.
“Dr. Susan Shadle does it all — she helps advance knowledge in her field, serves her community and, most importantly, is devoted to finding ways to help her students succeed. We are delighted to honor her as a Distinguished Professor,” said Boise State President Bob Kustra.
Shadle is the director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, founded at Boise State in 2006, and a professor of chemistry and biochemistry. She arrived at Boise State in 1996 with an undergraduate degree from Colgate University, a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Stanford University and a National Institute of Health postdoctoral fellowship at Johns Hopkins University.
In the classroom, Shadle repeatedly has been recognized for her outstanding performance by earning awards and honors, including the College of Arts and Sciences Foundation Award for Teaching in 2000 and 2004, Iota Sigma Pi Teaching Award in 2003, Associated Students of Boise State University Teaching Award nominee in 1999 and 2004, Carnegie Foundation U.S. Professor of the Year nominee in 2005, winner in 2015, and Boise State Honors College Professor of the Year in 2005.
