ASTM names CEE’s Jack Germaine Professor of the Year
As part of its “Year of the Professor” campaign throughout 2009, ASTM International (formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials) has chosen CEE senior research associate John Germaine as its Professor of the Year. ASTM established the award to recognize and reward the contributions of educators in the standards development process and in fostering students’ understanding of standards. The ASTM International campaign intends to expand student knowledge and awareness of technical standards, and provides college and university educators with tools and informational programs to help them teach their students about the benefits of standardization. As part of the campaign, Germaine will present a webinar at 10 a.m. Dec. 18, “Incorporating ASTM Standards into University Curricula.” Read more.
