Dan Harel, Adjunct Professor, Industrial Design was awarded today the Edline M. Chun Award for Outstanding Teaching and Service. The Edline M. Chun Award for Outstanding Teaching is awarded annually to an Adjunct faculty member in the College of Imaging Arts & Sciences (CIAS) who has shown excellence in teaching and given exemplary service to their affiliated school and to the College. Professor Edline Chun was a faculty member in the School of Media Sciences where she taught professional and technical writing, for more than two decades. She started her career in the College of Continuing Education at RIT and began teaching in the School of Media Sciences (formally the School of Printing Management and Sciences) in 1992. She was a dedicated and caring teacher giving as much and often more time to the students than a full time faculty member. She continually worked to ensure that her curriculum was current and that it addressed the needs of the industry where her students would launch their careers. Whether it was a teaching day, or not, she was on campus often working late into the evening meeting with students, grading papers, preparing assignments or attending events in support of students, faculty or staff.
