Kalamazoo College announced today that Senior Instructor of Economics and Business Chuck Stull will receive the 2018 Florence J. Lucasse Lectureship for Excellence in Teaching, awarded to a K faculty member in recognition of outstanding classroom teaching.
Stull joined the Business and Economics department in 1996, and has taught courses such as principles of economics, industrial organization, law and economics and business statistics. Before coming to K, he taught at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Wells College, Western Michigan University and Michigan State University. He studied economics as an undergraduate at Northwestern University and as a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Since 2002, Stull has been the director of the Kalamazoo College Center for Economic Education, which works to improve the teaching of economics at all levels. The center is a part of the National Council on Economic Education (NCEE). He has led workshops on economics for K-12 teachers and has published several pieces on teaching economics. He is currently working on a textbook, “Economics for Global Travelers.”
Outside of the classroom, Stull enjoys spending time with family, kayaking, photography, sketching, blogging and traveling internationally. He spent the 2014-15 academic year in Salamanca, Spain, and Oxford, UK, and the 2006-07 academic year in Montevideo, Uruguay. Other trips have included visits to South Africa, Dubai, Turkey, China, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Costa Rica and Mexico.
