When Robert Welker was named the 2001 Ohio Professor of the Year, he joined a distinguished group of teaching greats at Wittenberg. Four times in the last 15 years, Wittenberg has claimed Ohio’s top professor, making it the all-time leader in the Buckeye state and among the leaders nationwide.
But Welker, a professor of education since 1987, didn’t boast about his latest achievement. He didn’t call everyone in the state to share the news. In fact, he didn’t even attend the award ceremony in Washington, D.C. Instead, he stayed on campus to do what he does best — teach.
Discover Robert Welker, a family man who brings out the best in students, colleagues and educators across the country and close to home, as he follows in the footsteps of Wittenberg’s finest.
