Teaching Innovation Prize Winner

College of Engineering Professor David Chesney is the winner of the 2016 Provost's Teaching Innovation Prize.

Prof Chesney was the Tauber CoE advisor for the 2015 AIP Serva Group Team and for the 2014 GM Global Purchasing and Supply Chain Team, which captured third place at SPOTLIGHT!
