He inspires students to envision the art and science of teaching as achievable for them “rather than as a form of unreachable wizardry.” Students and colleagues express frank admiration and commendations for Dr. Day as someone “deserving of a lifetime achievement award for his brilliance as a teacher, and as a definitive professional of world renown.” One student writes, “Each Tuesday and Thursday I wake up with such joy and anticipation, knowing that I am coming to SLS 303.” The 2018 UHM Awards ceremony was held on April 27, 2018, at Kennedy Theatre.
