Dr. Richard McCuen, professor of civil and environmental engineering, is this year's recipient of the Clark School Faculty Service Award. McCuen has contributed to the university, Clark School and his department in several ways. He is director of the Clark School honors program, with which he has been involved since the 1980s, and teaches four honors seminar sections each year. He teaches the introductory course for our Future Faculty program, which prepares students for academic careers. He is a former associate dean for undergraduate studies and has served on his department's Committee on Undergraduate Education and its centennial celebration committee. He has been involved in high school outreach activities; in Chi Epsilon, the national honor society for civil engineering students; and in the mentoring of colleagues and students for many years. One colleague notes, "Rick's name is synonymous with service to the department, the school and the community at large."
