Alipour, Dong-O’Brien receive teaching excellence awards
Iowa State University Associate Professors Alice Alipour and Jing Dong-O’Brien earned both the Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering (CCEE) Department’s Charles W. Schafer Award for Excellence in Teaching, Research, and Service in 2021.
Alipour is also a structure and infrastructure engineer with the Bridge Engineering Center and Dong-O’Brien is also a transportation engineer with the Center for Transportation Research and Education.
The Charles W. Schafer Award for Excellence in Teaching, Research, and Service is a CCEE department award used to promote excellence in teaching, research, and service by junior faculty members. Two awards are made per year to faculty members who hold an academic rank below that of professor. The CCEE Awards Committee reviews qualified faculty members and submits its recommendations to the department chair, who ultimately selects the recipients.
InTrans-affiliated CCEE faculty also received both awards in 2019 and one of the two awards in 2020.
