Associate Professor of MarketingÂ Larry G. Gresham, Jr., also assistant department head and undergraduate program director for marketing, was recently named the 2005 recipient of the Bush Excellence Award for Faculty in International Teaching. His award helps give Mays a three-year streak: Lamar Savings Professor of Finance Arvind Mahajan received the award for Teaching in 2004 and Management Professor and Faculty Fellow Lorraine Eden was recognized for Research in 2003.
Gresham researches and teaches retailing, buyer behavior and international markets. He has been a Mays faculty member since 1981 and faculty coordinator for the marketing department’s Study Abroad program in Europe since 1987.
His $2,500 award for international teaching is one of three that will be presented at the Consul General’s Luncheon during International Week in late February. The award is sponsored by former President Bush and the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation.
