Economics professor receives $4K Shutz teaching award; to give public lecture

LAWRENCE -- Ted Juhl, assistant professor of economics, will deliver a public lecture Monday as the 2004 recipient of the $4,000 Byron T. Shutz Award for distinguished teaching.

Juhl will speak at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 22 in Alderson Auditorium, Kansas Union, on "Things Ain't What They Used to Be: Statistical Problems in Testing for Change." He is the 18th recipient of the award since its creation in 1978.

Juhl, who earned his doctorate in economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, joined KU in 1999. He teaches courses in macroeconomics and econometrics at undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels.

Despite the challenging and rigorous nature of the subject matter, he earns consistently high evaluations from his students, who praise his enthusiasm, his grasp of the subject matter, his ability to communicate it effectively and his accessibility. Juhl’s research deals with testing for changing statistical relationships, testing for nonstationarity in data and nonparametric estimation in time series models.

Shutz, who attended KU in 1918-19 but left to support his widowed mother, was a commercial real estate broker and mortgage banker who once was national president of the Mortgage Bankers Association of America. He served on KU Endowment Association’s executive committee and received KU's Distinguished Service Citation, its highest recognition, in 1963. He died in 1988.
