Faculty members recognized for outstanding teaching

December 14, 2006

The School of Engineering and Applied Science has named 27 faculty members to its Commendation List for Outstanding Teaching for the spring 2006 semester. Professors named to the list are those who received the highest scores on student evaluations for undergraduate and graduate courses.

“The feedback that students provide in their course evaluations has always been very important to the engineering faculty,” said Dean H. Vincent Poor. “The dean's office has long sent congratulatory notes to faculty members who receive top evaluations and to their department chairs. The following list represents an effort to recognize more publicly the great teaching at Princeton Engineering.”
