Lanny Griffin, assistant professor of materials engineering at Cal Poly, has been selected to receive a Dow Outstanding New Faculty Award for 2000.
Griffin is one of eight young faculty members from across the nation selected to receive the award this year.
The Dow Outstanding New Faculty Award is bestowed annually upon engineering educators of outstanding ability who have recently entered the profession of engineering education.
Griffin, who has been teaching at Cal Poly since 1997, will receive the award at the annual conference of the American Society for Engineering Education in St. Louis, Mo., later this month.
Nearly 3,000 attendees from the United States and Canada will convene to participate in the exchange of ideas on future directions for engineering education and research. The conference offers a variety of interactive exhibits, student displays, informational technical sessions, family activities, and entertainment.
Griffin, an Arroyo Grande resident, earned a bachelor's degree from Cal Poly in 1992 and a doctorate from UC Davis in 1996.
