BRIDGE Clinic / Professor of the Year


How does dancing and singing improve the health of a community? USF Health students and faculty show us the answer, as they recently held a talent show to benefit the USF BRIDGE Healthcare Clinic, which serves low-income, uninsured University Area residents. University Beat on WUSF TV has a look at their work, both onstage and in the Clinic.

Professor of the Year

You may have heard the name “Autar Kaw” on the news, or even seen his picture on a billboard along I-275. The USF engineering educator has been named a 2012 Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. We sat down with Kaw on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 to talk about his teaching style and what it feels like to win such a prestigious award.
