Dr. Stephan Gohmann is director of the College of Business Center for Free Enterprise.

Stephan F. Gohmann, PhD, director of the John H. Schnatter Center for Free Enterprise, BB&T Professor of Free Enterprise and economics professor, is one of four Faculty Favorites named for 2015-2016.

Every year, students nominate faculty members they would like to recognize for making a significant impact on their learning and intellectual development. Students described Gohmann as “driven and passionate” and “very insightful” and also recognized his ability to “make you think and broaden horizons.” 

“I enjoy teaching students. It’s a lifestyle. It’s a fulfilling thing to do. We have a really long day sometimes, but it’s worth it to see the lights go on with the students,” he said.

Gohmann has been at UofL for almost 20 years. He was named director of the Schnatter Center when the center opened in 2015. More about Gohmann is included in the video below. 

This year, students submitted 624 nominations for 334 faculty members to the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning, which solicits the nominations. The top four professors to receive the most nominations are recognized as “Faculty Favorites.”

The favorites will be recognized publicly at a reception in February 2017 at the Celebration of Teaching and Learning.
