IPB Director and GE Professor of Advanced Manufacturing Pamir Alpay was one of the few distinguished recipients of the 2018 UConn-AAUP Excellence Awards. He received the Excellence in Research & Creativity: Career Award, which is given to faculty who have contributed to a field of knowledge or area of inquiry. This award honors research excellence and creativity that enhances the University’s academic reputation. It recognizes scholarship with a national and international reputation, outstanding service in promoting scholarship at UConn, and long-term impact on UConn scholarship. The recipient must have a record of scholarly and creative productivity and must have worked at UConn for at least 10-years.
The UConn-AAUP seeks nominations of its member in areas of Teaching, Research, and Service Recognition. A formal presentation was held April 23, 2018, at the State Capitol building to honor this year’s recipients. Colleagues, friends, and families gathered to congratulate these deserving recipients on their achievements.
