Before the start of each semester Purdue Engineering usually recognizes its outstanding educators who received teaching evaluations of 4.7 or higher for classes with 10+ students and 50%+ response rate in the previous semester.

This time, however, we dedicate this outstanding educators recognition to


for their efforts in spring 2020 as classes were quickly transitioned to virtual learning environments.

COVID-19 presents profound medical, technological, social and economic challenges for humanity. Purdue Engineering’s Rising to the Challenge initiative stimulates engineering thought leadership, scholarship, innovation, education and action to address critical issues related to societal resilience in the face of shocks such as pandemics and other disasters and crises, both natural and human-made. As part of a great 21st century land grant institution, Purdue Engineering is rising to these challenges by addressing urgent needs and engineering longer-term solutions for a more robust and resilient future.

Engineering Rising to the Challenge responds to the U.S. National Academy of Engineering’s Call to Action on COVID-19, announced on April 7, 2020.
