Shawn Jasinski to be Recognized at Torch Night.
Earlier in the semester, graduating seniors nominated Shawn Jasinski to be the Torch Night Professor at the upcoming ceremony in May, and in April, it was made official: he will be the Torch Night Professor. This award goes to a faculty member who has had a significant impact, both academically and personally, on students at the University at Albany. This is quite the achievement for both Shawn and our growing WCI program. It is an honor well deserved.
Join us on the Academic Podium at 8:30pm on May 14th to celebrate this great achievement.
