The James R. Chelius Award for Excellence in Teaching was created by the Chelius family in honor of Professor Jim Chelius. Jim taught in the Human Resource Management program for 15 years. He was devoted to his students and was honored by Rutgers University for the quality of his teaching. The winner of the award is chosen based on a poll of the master's students in the Human Resource Management program. It was announced at the SMLR convocation that the first winner of the James R. Chelius Award is Professor Stan Gully. Congratulations Stan!
