CONGRATULATIONS to Dr. Mariajose Castellanos (aka "Dr. C") - winner of the 2018 UMBC Alumni Association Outstanding Faculty Award!
"This award is given to one full-time faculty member to honor extraordinary teaching as demonstrated by the effectiveness in motivating students in ways that have a lasting influence on their lives. The nominee should have a record of commitment to student success, the ability to provoke student interest and enthusiasm, service to the UMBC community, and have constructively impacted and influenced campus life beyond the classroom."
Dr. Castellanos is a Senior Lecturer and the Undergraduate Program Director in the Department of Chemical, Biochemical & Environmental Engineering (CBEE). She was nominated for this award by Mr. Jeremy Drew (CBEE Alum, BS 2017), who gathered narratives from over 30 CBEE alumni demonstrating Dr. C's effectiveness in motivating students in ways that have a lasting influence on their lives, and a number of faculty describing Dr. C's service to the UMBC community.
