Three College of Engineering and Science faculty are recognized at the Victor Hurst Convocation
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:
University Centennial Professor and David A. Brown Endowed Scholar of Mechanical Engineering
Robert Geist, Professor in the School of Computing
Named for Clemson President Emeritus Philip Prince, the Prince Award for Innovation in Teaching recognizes outstanding faculty members who demonstrate creative and novel teaching methods. This year’s winner was:
Stephen Moysey, Associate Professor of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences
