In making the presentation on April 19, Sarah Citrin ’05 read students’ comments to the Award Committee that called Mosteller the “epitome of what a professor should be,” and cited his willingness to answer questions, his ability to explain detailed materials clearly while putting them into a broader context, and his thoughtfulness in dealing with students, both in class and one on one.

“I feel extremely lucky to have had you as a professor,” said Citrin in presenting the award.

For his part, Mosteller called teaching the best part of his job.
