Prof. Zimmerman Awarded 2020 Ackerman Award for Teaching and Mentoring

April 20, 2020

Congratulations to Professor Zimmerman on her selection for the 2020 Ackerman Award for Teaching and Mentoring.  The Ackerman Award is given every year and “recognizes outstanding undergraduate and/or graduate teaching and mentoring as evidenced by a faculty member’s impact and involvement with students (through teaching and mentoring) and their contributions to the education process in the School and University”. Julie was selected based on letters of support from undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, and alumni of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. These letters cited Julie’s exceptional dedication to her students, both in laboratory work and in classes, as well has her unmatched ability to tailor her mentorship to her students as individuals.
