It is both an honor and a privilege to present Michael Mayhew as the 2007 recipient of the AGU Excellence in Geophysical Education Award. I do so on behalf of the geosciences community and the dozens of geoscientists who wrote letters documenting the sustained commitment and impact Mike has had on geoscience education. He is highly deserving of this recognition because his contributions to geophysical education have resulted in (1) a significant and long-lasting cultural change in the community such that geophysical education is embraced and promoted by scientists across the discipline; and (2) the development of a vibrant and highly successful geophysical education research community dedicated to advancing understanding of how we teach and learn about Earth.
