2011 Faculty and Staff Retiree Recognition Album Two  

Professor of Biology Eric Wetzel pays tribute to 31-year biology department veteran John Munford:

"An excellent lecturer and researcher and a valued colleague. John is perhaps the most broadly-trained biologist that we have had in recent or even not-so-recent history. Who else can do cell biology, organismal physiology AND comparative vertebrate anatomy in addition to being an excellent teacher and participant in C&T.

"John is a true pro in the classroom and a paragon of the traditional lecture. Ask any of our students about John’s courses and they consistently and routinely point to his excellent lectures and well-thought out labs – how well-crafted and clear that they are: in many ways his classes and lectures are the gold-standards in the department.

In addition to teaching and research, John’s commitment to students has been reflected in his long-standing and excellent work on committees such as the Minority Concern Committee early on, the Athletic Committee, and his monumental contributions to the Pre-Health Sciences Advisory Committee over the last 25 years; it’s truly getting to the point where we can say he’s helped generations of students go to Medical School."
