Two faculty members from the College of Engineering and Science were named Alumni Distinguished Professors, and a third won the Prince Award for Innovation in Teaching at this year’s Victor Hurst Convocation, an annual ceremony that opens the school year.

Since 1962, the Clemson Alumni Association has named Alumni Distinguished Professors to recognize and support excellence in teaching. Students, faculty members and administrators select the recipients, who receive a yearly stipend made possible by alumni gifts to the Clemson Fund, the university’s annual giving fund.

Two of the 2015 recipients came from the College of Engineering and Science:
