The 27th Golden Apple Award: The Unexpected Benefits of Pain, Passion, and Pets

Edward Cho
Monday, April 3, 2017
7:00-9:00 PM
Auditorium Rackham Graduate School (Horace H.) Map
The Golden Apple Award is the only university-wide award given to one professor every year based solely upon student nominations which recognizes and honors outstanding teaching and student engagement at the University of Michigan. Each year, the winning professor hosts an "ideal last lecture", in which they construct a lecture on a topic of their choice as if it was to be the last one they will ever give.

We welcome you to join us in honoring this year's winner, Professor Edward Cho from the Department of Economics, and to be a part of his ideal last lecture, which he has titled "The Unexpected Benefits of Pain, Passion, and Pets". Given Professor Cho's popularity, this surely is a lecture that you will not want to miss! Admission is free for all attendees and a reception with refreshment will follow.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at We look forward to seeing you there!
