Congratulations to Dr. Michaell A. Huber!

Dr. Michaell A. Huber has been recently distinguished with the prestigious award: “2019 Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award from The University of Texas System”.

The University Of Texas System Board Of Regents recognizes exceptional UT educators who best exemplify excellence, innovation and commitment to student success.

Over the past 11 years, regents have awarded $20 million to more than 700 UT educators for delivering the highest quality of instruction in the classroom, lab, field and online.

The 2019 Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award named 27 faculty members from all 14 UT academic and health institutions to receive the teaching award. Recipients will receive a certificate, a medallion and $25,000 in appreciation of their impact on students and their institutions, during the Board of Regents meeting in Austin next August.

Michaell A. Huber, D.D.S., professor in the Department of Comprehensive Dentistry, and Eileen M. Lafer, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Structural Biology, were honored with the award from UT Health San Antonio, TX.

“This distinguished honor is awarded only to a few who inspire their students by their extraordinary teaching expertise, mentoring and personal commitment,” UT Health San Antonio President William L. Henrich, M.D., MACP, said in congratulating Drs. Huber and Lafer. “As a result, your students flourish with success, which reflects the honored traits you have used to set them on their professional path.”

Dr. Huber said he was “extremely surprised and humbled by the award. It represents and is an acknowledgment of all the hard work done by all of my great colleagues in the School of Dentistry. Dental education is a team sport.”
