The A. James Clark School of Engineering has announced the first class of ENGAGED Faculty. This is an honor that has been bestowed upon faculty by the Clark School of Engineering through undergraduate student nominations. Among the honorees was Alford L. Ward Professor and Distinguished Scholar-Teacher Dr. Isaak Mayergoyz of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The five other faculty members in the inaugural class include:

    •    Dr. Peter Kofinas, Fischell Department of Bioengineering 

    •    Dr. David Lovell, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
    •    
Dr. James Milke, Department of Fire Protection Engineering
    •    
Dr. Srinivasa Raghavan, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
    •    
Dr. Chandrasekhar Thamire, Department of Mechanical Engineering

The ENGAGED Faculty were nominated by Clark School undergraduates because they

    •    are approachable
    •    take a genuine interest in and have concern for their students, especially outside of the classroom
    •    are accessible
    •    have high expectations of their students
    •    encourage students and provide advice and support on academic and extracurricular activities

These faculty members have been described as being dedicated and patient. Each has been identified as a positive mentor and role model.

The ENGAGED Faculty will be listed on the ENGAGED Faculty website, navigable from the Keystone Progam homepage.

The ENGAGED Faculty project is a component of the NSF funded program called ENGAGE: Engaging Students in Engineering (NSF GSE #0833076). The University of Maryland was one of ten schools selected to participate in the first year of the program to implement research-based strategies to enhance the retention of undergraduate engineering students.
