Chris will be retiring in December 2014, but on Thursday the 3rd of April he taught his final class at Memorial. Chris has had an outstanding teaching and research career including winning the President's Award for Outstanding Teaching in 2007. Fittingly, his final class was in the ever popular (but very challenging) Geography 3222 Research Design and Quantitative Methods in Geography course. During his outstanding teaching career Chris continued to teach first year courses in Geography and played a key role in revamping our Geography first year course, which is now called 'Geographies of Global Change'. He also taught courses in Urban Geography at the third and fourth year level, which is his research specialty.
The invasion of his class by more than 40 faculty, staff and students reflects how highly the Department regards Chris' reputation as a teacher, educator and long time faculty member in Geography at Memorial. We wish him all the best for his retirement.
