Richard Creath

“The very, very best teachers that we see at the university and even beyond the university, they leave a trail that we can follow in terms of excellence and in terms of the kinds of quality that they bring to the experience as far as the lives of students are concerned. That’s just bright and crystal clear. In Dr. Creath’s case, for 35 years, he’s been laying out this trail for students at Arizona State University with a variety of markers along it. This particular award, this President’s Professor award, recognizes this trail that Rick has laid out in terms of the wonderful experience that he brings on a day to day basis and integrating research and education for the students of Arizona State University.”
