The Pauling Family has endowed the Crellin Pauling Student Teaching Award so that two awards ($2,000 each) will be made to student teachers or teaching assistants in biotechnology-related settings, courses and programs. In line with the AAAS/NSF Vision & Change Report, we know that recognition for outstanding teaching practices is an important component of changing the way science and engineering is taught to better match the way it is done.
