The following is a list of the educators receiving the #iteachmsu Educator Award from the College of Engineering. For more information on these awards, check out the article entitled "#iteachmsu Educator Awards".
Ian Hildebrandt: Ian has gone above and beyond during this past year. As a senior doctoral student on our team, he took it upon himself to create tutorials, weekly research training sessions, and regular check-ins with our group of undergraduates last summer, in order to create positive remote research experiences and maintain professional connections for those undergraduates during the period when they could not be working in our laboratory. Additionally, he has very effectively assumed significant project management responsibilities in a multi-institutional project, which have been important in building collegial relationships in a new project partnership.
Corey Gamache: This guy is the toughest person I know in ME. He survived teaching a lab class by himself in a pandemic while also taking classes and doing research. I would like to nominate this man for a Purple Heart.
