Dr. Payvar Receives Spring 2005 Presidential Teaching Professorship Award

The ME Department would like to congratulate to Dr. Payvar, who received the Presidential Teaching Professorship Award, for the top honor in teaching, a well-deserved recognition. Dr. Payvar is recognized as a great teacher and has the best interests of the students at heart. Students and Alumni have positive things to say about his teaching and many of them were asked to provide their input in the selection process. This recognition comes as a responsibility to work on development activities to further enhance teaching effectiveness and engage in dissemination activities. Northern Illinois University College of Engineering now has two Presidential Teaching Professorship Award winners in the college (Dr. Payvar and Dr. Scarborough).
