Faculty note: Clampitt lauded by student, honored by NRHH

Prof. Phillip Clampitt, Information and Computing Science and Communication, has been selected by the National Residence Hall Honorary as the Institution Faculty/Staff Member of the Month for September 2014. NRHH recognizes individuals who show great dedication and leadership throughout the campus community, according to the organization. A student nominated Clampitt for the honor, calling his “Great Career Fantasy” project — in which students research their dream job — not only enjoyable but “the most useful project I have ever done.” The student cites other examples of highly relevant coursework, noting that “he always finds a way to relate his teachings to real-life experiences, regardless of who you are, and I have never found a professor to be more practical and inspirational.” More on NRHH.
