UH Manoa Chancellor’s Citation for Meritorious Teaching
Manoa’s Meritorious Teachers
Steven Businger is a professor in the meteorology department. He is an active meteorology research scientist in the evolution and structure of destructive atmospheric storms.
He articulates his philosophy of teaching through the theme of using nature’s creativity and imagination to stimulate these qualities in students. He engages them by demonstrating that science is not the privilege of a small number of researchers but part of the vast reality of living—the how, what and why of everything in human experience.
Businger’s teaching practices are derived from the understanding that students can flourish in oral and writing intensive courses through implementation of his own teaching designs, with the ultimate goal of “exposing students of meteorology to the tools of their future trade.”
