Professor Josef Ben Levi Receives NEIU Student Choice Award
We received great news from Professor Josef Ben Levi:
Between January 24 and February 7, 2013, voting ballots were administered for the First Annual Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) Student Choice Awards for professors whom students in each major considered the best instructors through several survey instruments. These included the NEIU student newspaper The Independent, NEIU Targeted Announcements, Facebook, and tables in the Student Union. Those professors who received the majority of the student votes for each individual major, along with staff members, were given an award from the Honors Society.
I was more than pleased to find out that I was chosen for this award. I want every student here at CCICS that voted for me to know how much I deeply appreciate this honor, since it is testimony from the community of the hard work that I have put in to provide the best instruction I possibly can to each student I teach.
