Paul Pickhardt, a member of Lakeland's faculty since 2006 and current Natural Sciences Division Chair, was named Lakeland's winner of the Underkofler Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award in 2011. He has a genuine love for biology, and he has great success getting his students to share in his enthusiasm. Paul demands hard work, but he's one of Lakeland's most approachable and supportive instructors. An aquatic ecologist, Paul has published and presented extensively on this work. He partnered with fellow biology faculty member Greg Smith to create Lakeland's tropical biology course in Belize, and Paul's dedication to environmental issues resulted in the college's participation in Focus the Nation to raise awareness about climate change.
