CARSKI Suchman


Erica Suchman, Ph.D., Colorado State University, Fort Collins, has been honored with the 2014 Carski Foundation Distinguished Undergraduate Teaching Award. As a professor, Suchman has shown tremendous dedication to her students and the community. Nominator Spencer Benson, University of Maryland, describes her as “a world class researcher and educator who has made major contributions to improving microbiology education through her publications, leadership, and extensive contributions to American Society for Microbiology (ASM).”

Suchman received her Ph.D. in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry from the University of California, Irvine in 1994. Currently a Professor in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology, and Pathology, at Colorado State University (CSU), she researches the effectiveness of active learning strategies in large lecture courses. In addition, she is developing courses introducing freshmen to authentic research experiences and a course teaching graduate students how to mentor these students through these experiences. She has served as Chair of the Committee on Technology Enhanced Education and Editor-in-Chief of the ASM’s peer reviewed education resource, MicrobeLibrary, for 9 years, and is a member of the International Education committee and Education Board of ASM. In 2010, she was named as a CSU Distinguished Teaching Scholar; this prestigious distinction is a lifetime appointment held by only 12 faculty members at a time.
