James "Jim" S. Hall, PhD
: 210-434-6711, ext. 2245
PhD, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio; BS, Angelo State University
After earning my doctorate in pharmacology from the University of Texas Health Science Center here in San Antonio, I applied for a position in the biology department at Our Lady of the Lake University. I did this because I enjoyed the teaching experience I received in graduate school and because my wife and I wanted to make San Antonio our home. I have been teaching at the Lake since 1983 and can honestly say I have loved every minute of it.
Areas of Expertise:
My area of expertise is in pharmacology, human anatomy and physiology.
In what ways have students participated in your special projects or conference presentations:
Undergraduate science and math majors here at the Lake often accompany me to the Sigma Zeta National Convention where students present the results of their research. Sigma Zeta is a national science and mathematics honor society. I serve as co-advisor of our local chapter with Dr. Cary Guffey.
What has been your greatest success while teaching at Our Lady of the Lake University":
These have included being named Outstanding Faculty Member during the Student Government Faculty Roast, receiving the Stell-Ball Award from education faculty and students, being named Most Valuable Advisor during the OLLU Leadership Banquet, receiving the Fleming Award for Teaching Excellence as selected by faculty peers, receiving an award from Student Advocates for Persons with Disabilities and being the National President of Sigma Zeta.
What do students like best about your class?:
They say that I am able to relate difficult concepts to their everyday life, and they appreciate my eagerness and willingness to help them succeed.
What is the most rewarding aspect of teaching at Our Lady of the Lake University?:
Students here are genuinely interested in learning and are always willing to help each other out instead of competing with one another. Small class sizes allow students and faculty to get to know each other well.
Length of service at OLLU?:
I have been here 23 years.
What are some of your former students doing now?:
Many of my students are physicians, pharmacists, physical therapists, nurses, dentists, optometrists, veterinarians, faculty members at other universities, teachers in elementary and secondary schools and some work in biomedical research laboratories.
