Alter receives Learning Communities honor

Jennifer Alter, assistant director of the Engineering Honors Program and the program's learning community instructor, recently received the inaugural Academic Connection Award from Purdue Learning Communities. The honor is awarded by Learning Communities staff members in recognition of a learning community instructor who excels at planning events and activities that directly connect classroom learning with hands-on experiences.

Alter, who is among 117 learning community instructors at Purdue, received a plaque at the Learning Communities Appreciation and Recognition Luncheon last month.
