(11/15/13) A U-W La Crosse history instructor has been honored as Wisconsin's Professor-of-the-Year. 

Victor Macias-Gonzalez received his award yesterday in Washington D-C.  The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching sponsors the award, which recognizes the nation's best undergraduate professors.  Macias-Gonzalez has been at La Crosse since 2000.  His emphasis is 19th century Latin American history.  Among other things, Macias-Gonzalez teamed up with La Crosse associate dean Barbara Stewart to start the school's Eagle Mentoring Program five years ago.  Its goal is to retain under-privileged and under-represented second-year students.
