State honors BGSU biologist with Faculty Innovator Award

Creating a free, online textbook used by students in his Animal Behavior class has earned Dr. Robert Huber, biology, one of the inaugural 10 Faculty Innovator Awards from the University System of Ohio (USO).

Huber and his fellow recipients were honored March 24 in Columbus, where they received the $1,000 cash award for using technological innovation to reduce the cost of textbooks to students. They were recognized by Gov. Ted Strickland and the Ohio House and Senate, as well as by Eric Fingerhut, chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents.
