An active researcher, Tomkovick engaged dozens of students in collaborative research, instilling in them a love for scholarly inquiry. He also used his talents to help others become better teachers. He was a charter member of the UW-Eau Claire Network for Excellence in Teaching Council and was a mentor to new faculty members in the Department of Management and Marketing.
Tomkovick received many awards throughout his academic career, including the UW-Eau Claire Excellence in Teaching award, which he received twice. He was nominated three times by the university for the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) U.S. Professor of the Year award. With this scholarship, and a faculty award that were created in his honor, Chuck's dedication to and impact on the faculty and students of UW-Eau Claire continues today.
