NOV. 11, 2005--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls will be honoring Bradley Caskey, professor of psychology and associate dean in the College of Arts and Sciences, on Nov. 17 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in Gallery 101 of the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building.

Caskey is one of two faculty members in the UW System to receive the 2005 Regents Teaching Excellence Award.

"The Regents Teaching Excellence Award is one of the highest accolades that the UW System annually bestows," said Chancellor Don Betz. "Caskey's selection rightly shines light on his achievements and his consistent dedication and success. Our university is committed to teaching excellence, and Brad's recognition demonstrates that this commitment is an integral part of our daily lives."

Caskey received a $5,000 award for his outstanding career achievement in teaching. The award aims to recognize an individual, academic department, program or unit that demonstrates exceptional commitment to and effectiveness in teaching.

Caskey has also received both UW-RF Distinguished Teacher award in 1997 and Outstanding Advisor award in 2004. He is a nationally recognized author of textbook manuals, a mentor to McNair scholars and recipient of River Falls' Outstanding Community Service award.

The reception is open to the public. A short program will begin at 2 p.m.
